    Exclusive Song Premiere: Hunter & The Bear, "Wounded" -

    ARTISTdirect is preparing for the weekend a day early and we are doing so with this song premiere from London's Hunter & The Bear. It's for their track "Wounded."

    "'Wounded' is a song we wrote when we heard a good friend of ours had gotten very sick. Overwhelming helplessness mixed with fear and desire to offer a helping hand in his time of need led us to write it. It's a very important song for us," the band told us.

    Indeed, that is such a beautiful sentiment! When a song is inspired by such a painful and immediate personal situation, it oozes realness from every note and every chord.

    Sonically, the song is a gentle acoustic ballad, firmly rooted in the Americana sound, driven by the purposeful but emotional strumming and lived-in vocals, which tell a high-impact story. It sounds like... life.

    With that in mind, have a listen to Hunter & The Bear's "Wounded," which is easily one of the most emotionally resonant tracks we've heard all week.

    —Amy Sciarretto
