We’re all looking back to brighter days during the current crisis.

We could all also use a good pick-me-up as well. Dan Tedesco provides that with his new single, instrumental “2444.”

The popular midwest songwriter, who channels everybody from Tom Petty to Jason Isbell with his rootsy brand of folk/rock, released the new song last Friday. 

“I wrote most of this a long time ago when I’d only been playing guitar a few years,” he says. “I used to jam on it with a good buddy of mine who played drums. It takes me back to a time when things were new and exciting. Life was simpler. There was a lot of freedom. I hope it brings you some peace.”

“2444” has the energy, feel, and pure excitement of creation and experimentation. Open chords on an acoustic guitar are strummed like they’re brand new, with keys and electric guitars filling in the sound with atmospherics and complimentary riffs. It builds for five hypnotic minutes before coming to an animated ending. 

Songwriters will hear their own earlier work in it, as it has the combination of structure and freedom of form that only comes easy in your earliest songwriting.

“2444” is available on all streaming platforms. To get an even better taste of Tedesco’s songwriting, his entire discography is on sale for whatever price you’d like. Tedesco also does regular live streams on his Facebook page. His show at the Warming House, which was supposed to take place on March 21, has been rescheduled for May 9.
