(Nashville, Tenn. – March 23, 2020) – Modern Country duo, October Rose, has released their new single “Different Kind of High,” which is now available through all streaming platforms and digital retailers (listen here).
Derek Allan and Leanne Weiss, who make up October Rose, solely wrote the track, which is a heartfelt tribute to the ongoing drug epidemic across the country. “We were inspired to tell two different stories with the goal of creating awareness and sending a message of hope,” added the duo.
“Different Kind of High” tells the story of loss due to addiction from two perspectives. As songwriters, October Rose felt compelled to share this emotional story through the power of music in hopes of building awareness and encouraging change. “Each day, we’re losing mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, family members, and friends to addiction. Each story is different, but the pain of loss is the same,” commented the duo.
With the release of the single, the duo is encouraging listeners to donate to Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastation the disease of addiction causes families. Shatterproof is changing the conversation about addiction. They are saving lives by helping pass laws that prevent more of our loved ones from becoming addicted to prescription opioids and supporting first responders who can rescue those who overdose (donate here).
