Nashville-based singer/songwriter Ruston Kelly released his Shape & Destroy  album in August of last year, his second full-lengther, and it earned him some real love. The “Under the Sun” single and video highlight the raw and honest lyrics that run through the whole album.

“Making this record definitely taught me that I don’t want to be selfish: I want to channel something larger than myself and give myself to the process as fully as possible, because these songs also become the story of whoever hears them,” Ruston said in a statement. Whatever someone might get out of listening to this record and hearing me express myself in this way, it’s completely theirs.”

Ruston is livestreaming on Friday, so check it out for yourself.
