A little soul to ease your mind this beautiful Friday in Chicago. Jack Red sings his heart out on his new release Homegrown; giving praise to the city that raised him. Here is what he had to say about the inspiration and concept for this one:

The concept of embracing your history, has inspired my philosophy of living life from the inside out. Homegrown celebrates my story and is a motivational ode to people’s individual roots. If you feel lost in the whirlwind of today, listen to this record and get back home.

A multitude of creatives were involved in the creation of this including string players, additional vocals from Matthew, Leah, Isaiah and Rachel Robinson along with Sherren Olivia. This was exactly what I needed to hear this afternoon; something positive, absolutely beautiful, and up-lifting.
