New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Kiefer Sutherland has released "Something You Love," the propulsive Petty-meets-Springsteen song from his forthcoming full-length album, Reckless & Me. Due out worldwide on Friday, April 26 via BMG, the 10-track Reckless & Medelivers Sutherland's Americana and country rock-infused songwriting style and highlights his gift of soulful storytelling.
Co-written with Jude Cole, "Something You Live" pays tribute to the "average person who works very hard just to stay in the middle," who finds themselves betrayed by big business. "Has it happened to a lot of people I care about?" questions Sutherland. "Yes, of course it has."
The new album holds beautifully arranged ballads and authentic country rockers such as the album's lead single, "Open Road," and second offering, "This Is How It's Done" - all delivered with Sutherland's distinctive, whiskey-soaked and gravel-laced voice.

Sutherland's three-decade, award-winning acting career has made him a familiar face around the globe, but his other passion is music. "I asked myself, says Sutherland, "'what is the thing that I love about acting, and music?' 'What is the common denominator?' For me it's storytelling and music is a very different way of doing it."
Produced by Jude Cole, Reckless & Me marks the follow up to Sutherland's critically acclaimed debut album, Down In A Hole (2016) Now returning with Reckless & Me, Sutherland wants to keep touring and sharing these songs with his fans. Though he loves writing and recording, the stage holds a special place in his heart, and for the last three years, he's toured extensively earning a reputation as a relentless road warrior.
"I couldn't have imagined the depth with which I have fallen in love with touring," says Sutherland. "To have the opportunity to convey intimate, personal stories to an audience has proven to be priceless."
U.S. tour dates are expected to be announced soon.
