By Matt Wickstrom

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Gritty rock ‘n roller turned singer-songwriter Michael Tyree has unveiled “See You On The Other Side” off his upcoming solo debut “Sin Eater,” out Jan 25. Listen below.

Michael Tyree – See You On The Other Side

The song and album were recorded in a recording room inside the Grehan Journalism building on the University of Kentucky campus. The album was recorded and mixed by John Clark, also a UK professor. The album was the last of many to be recorded in the building, which is currently closed and under renovation. Hear Tyree talk about recording “Sin Eater” and more in his interview on Wick’s Picks from Sept. 10, 2018.

Additionally, “See You On The Other Side” features Lexington journeyman and multi-instrumentalist J. Tom Hnatow on pedal steel, providing a smooth and steady backdrop to Tyree’s seasoned, versatile voice and guitar. The direction of the song and album are a new one for Tyree, formerly a member of hard rock trio The Past. However, Tyree has shown that he’s more than up to the challenge, alluding on “See You On The Other Side” to much more pressing, trying times.

Tyree says that “See You On The Other Side” has been in his catalog for a few years after first coming about following the artist getting kicked out of the home he was crashing at in Nashville, leaving him to live out of his truck.

“I was lost and alone,” Tyree said. “Probably drunk on some gas station tall boys too. It was my wake up call to myself to get my head out of the gutter and back in the game… It’s my heavy reminder to myself to always look ahead and keep moving towards the next adventure, no matter what it may bring.”

Speaking of moving ahead, you can catch Tyree perform “See You On The Other Side” among other original tunes from “Sin Eater” and beyond on Jan. 25 at Best Friend Bar when he takes the stage with Mercy Bell, Blake Hester and Fighting Futures.

The world is calling your name again
Telling you it’s time to go
New direction, new times, new winds blowing
Go on and hit the road

But why, why can’t we let it pass?
‘Cause no one will live the life you have
Go on and make it last

Lost in a big ol’ city
Without my friends, without my family
Living alone still searching
For a place I want to be
Maybe I’ll find myself
And learn how to settle down
But for now I’m still leaving just this letter
That says “see you on the other side,” yeah

Now you’re stuck in the land of promise
Don’t let it get you down
They’ll kill your dreams but don’t be nervous
They’ll come back around

But why, why can’t we all be free?
Don’t live for the money or for fake fame
Just be who you want to be

Lost in a big ol’ city
Without my friends, without my family
Living alone still searching
For a place I want to be
Maybe I’ll find myself
And learn how to settle down
But for now I’m still leaving just this letter
That says “see you on the other side,” yeah

Fell asleep to train engine droning
Singing a cowboy’s song
If I don’t make it by the morning
I’m already gone

Lost in a big ol’ city
Without my friends, without my family
Living alone still searching
For a place I want to be
Maybe I’ll find myself
And learn how to settle down
But for now I’m still leaving just this letter
That says “see you on the other side,” yeah
