Hillsdale, New Jersey (PressExposure) August 11, 2013 -- Americana/Roots Rocker DownTown Mystic's new single "Way To Know", featuring famous E Street Band rockers Garry Tallent on bass and Max Weinberg on drums, follows on the heels of the success of the "No Exceptions" and "Lost & Found" singles which have garnered airplay on over 500 radio stations worldwide.
"Way To Know" is a straight ahead rocker with a message aimed at the unrest, political or otherwise, in the US and around the world. Songwriter and head Mystic, Robert Allen, says he wrote the song "as a reaction to the way things are happening without much thought to the future". Robert again teams up with one of the all-time great rhythm sections in rock'n'roll--Garry Tallent and Max Weimberg from Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. Robert previously hooked up with Garry & Max on the rocker "Hard Enough", which was released on the critically acclaimed "Standing Still" cd last year in Europe.
Robert credits Garry Tallent with coming up with the uptempo driving arrangement on "Way To Know". Asked about how the song came to be recorded, Robert says, "I originally wrote and demoed the song as a midtempo track that had a few stops and starts in it. When Garry heard it he said "once you start, don't stop" and proceeded to change the tempo." Robert adds, "Garry heard the song as this Stones kind of track and the funniest thing I remember was Garry telling Max to play like Charlie Watts".
"Way To Know" is being released as a 3-Song Digital 45 and is available on iTunes: [http://lnkd.in/PiWVt3]
