Americana Highways presents this premiere of Mike Donello’s song “Future With You,” a track from his future album. The song was produced by Chris Hawkes and Mike Donello; engineered by Pat Manske and Chris Hawkes; and mixed and mastered by Chris Hawkes. It will be available on April 5.
“Future With You” is Mike Donello on vocals, acoustic guitar and ukulele; Chris Hawkes on harmony vocals, drums, percussion, bass, and keys; and Matt Creaton on electric guitar. The musical arrangement is so pretty it’ll give you chills, as Donello dives down to examine loss and mortality in this reflective number.
This song has taken on many points of view for me. At it’s core it’s about trying to find your way through your dreams, life and reality and building a future with the ones you love. Through all the ups and downs we make a choice to dedicate ourselves to a future with significant others, family, or friends. During the recording process, the song took on a deeper meaning. It brought into focus the idea of relationships we keep with a lost loved one and the yearning to see them again in dreams whether red or blue / happy or sad. The red and blue lyrics symbolize opposing forces such as good or bad, warm or cold, or even conservative vs liberal. This song is dedicated to my wife, my family, friends and especially my late father who passed away in 2022. I chose to release this song April 5th on his birthday. — Mike Donello
