Exclusive Premiere: David Myles, ‘Need a Break’

David Myles
Riley Smith

On Sept. 25, Nova Scotia’s own David Myles will celebrate the release of his official U.S. debut, So Far. In a unique spin, So Far isn’t exactly “new” music; rather, it’s a collection of Myles’ work over the years, reinterpreted in a stripped-down environment. Today (June 30), Diffuser is ecstatic to team up with him to unveil the first track from the collection, “Need a Break” — take it for a spin in the audio player below.

As you can instantly tell with “Need a Break,” the stripped-down environment that So Far lives in is essentially little more than Myles and his acoustic guitar; that doesn’t mean it lacks energy, though. In fact, when listening to the record, it’s obvious Myles is sinking his whole heart into the reimagining of his music. “These are some of my favorite songs, ones that I’ve played live all over the world,” he explained when So Far was first announced. “It is a really clear reflection of who I am as a musician.”

“‘Need a Break’ is half early Johnny Cash, half JJ Cale,” Myles tells us. “I had a blast writing this one. Plus, I got to insert my love of Walt Whitman and the Tao Te Ching into it, which I was pretty pumped about!”

Myles has several shows scheduled throughout July, so make sure to check out his full tour itinerary here — and stay current with everything happening in his world at his official website.
