DownTown Mystic will release the brand-new Better Day via Sha-La Music on April 17! The release will be serviced to Americana Radio (AMA) by Jenni Finlay Promotions and has an add date of April 6. Better Day will mark the return of DownTown Mystic (the alter ego for American rocker Robert Allen) to the format since their most successful release, DownTown Nashville, four years ago.
The Better Day single and album were digitally released on January 24 and distributed worldwide through AWAL/Kobalt Music. The single Better Day has been getting a great response at Worldwide Radio with over 300 stations in 27 countries playing it. In the UK, the single is being played on over 80 stations, easily making it DownTown Mystic’s best release there to date.
No surprise: Allen found inspiration from a legendary rock singer. “I wanted the album to have an overall positive vibe and ‘Better Day’ was the perfect song to build on,” he says. “I’m a big Tom Petty fan and as a nod to him the track features a 12-string Rickenbacker guitar that he made a trademark of his sound. I purposely created the instrumental break as an homage to Tom and his memory.”
