  • X Ambassadors Releases New Song “Smoke On the Highway”

  • American pop-rock band X Ambassadors, consisting of Sam Nelson Harris (lead vocals/guitar), Casey Harris (keyboards) and Adam Levin (drums), will release upcoming fourth studio album “Townie” this Friday (April 5th).

    The album is their first LP in three years since the 2021 album “The Beautiful Liar”.
    The band released a new song “Smoke On the Highway” as the final promotional song from the album on April 4, 2024, following “Follow the Sound of My Voice”, “Half-Life”, “Your Town”, and “No Strings”.

    The band frontman Sam Nelson Harris told THE LINE of BEST FIT about the song, “You're at a beautiful waterfall and someone's left a six pack and there's a shopping cart that's flipped over. There's that irreverence that I wanted to capture. There's some images that are pulled from real things. There's one part in particular, a friend of ours used to steal steaks from grocery stores and he'd stuff them in his pants. I wanted to create this character whose friends would all laugh at him when he'd come out with his paints stained with blood from the bloody steaks. I think Upstate New York is so known for its beauty, but there's so much darkness there too. It's funny and sad, which is my favourite combo.”
  • The new album comprises a 12-track, produced by X Ambassadors.
    The band returned to their upstate New York roots and draws their hometown and surrounding community with acoustic guitar mainly.
    Sam Nelson Harris said of the album, “A gas station glows in the night, two miles from the Tompkins County line. It cuts through the bleak, winter night like a grotesque, twenty-first century lighthouse. To the east- the college town of Ithaca, NY. To the west, everything else. The air is cold and unforgiving. The landscape every shade of grey and brown on the color-wheel. A couple of teenagers loiter in the parking lot, plotting their escape. Most of them know they won't ever leave this town, so tonight their escape is a temporary one. Rollies and half-drank liters of Mountain Dew. Grapefruit blunts and chapped lips. Their baggy clothes full of restlessness and longing. This is Townie.”
