Joy Williams will be waiting on the “Front Porch”

The latest single and title track off her upcoming LP.

Joy Williams has dropped “Front Porch,” the sentimental title track from her forthcoming full-length.

The ethereal song traces the former Civil Wars member’s own experience of moving back home to Nashville after living in Los Angeles. “I took the long way / Looking for the shortcut / To find out that this place / Was made of the best stuff,” she sings.

“So much of this is about coming home, whether to a physical place or to yourself,” Williams told Rolling Stone. “The lines on my face, I can see them more clearly now. But a lot of them are laugh lines. This record feels like breathing more deeply into who I am. Come what may.”


Williams previously released the singles “Canary” and “The Trouble With Wanting” from her upcoming album, Front Porch, out May 3.
