Save Me, San Francisco,
from Grammy Award-winning band Train, contains the new summer anthem, “Hey, Soul Sister” and is the multi-platinum-selling band’s fifth studio album hearkening back to the band’s early days in the mid-‘90s, when they first formed in the city by the bay.
This album marks the restoration of Train’s original line-up, including vocalist Pat Monahan, guitarist Jimmy Stafford and drummer Scott Underwood, since 2003’s platinum offering, My Private Nation
. Train recorded Save Me, San Francisco
in London’s Kensaltown Studios, with producer Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, KT Tunstall, James Morrison) at the helm, helping the band tap into their organic, distinguished sound. The album’s lead track, “Hey, Soul Sister”, is charismatic, fresh, and laden with hooks that stick in your head all day, perfect to celebrate the dog days of the summer season.
The song also marks a new direction from Train’s classic style found in prior hits such as “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)”, “Calling All Angels” and “Meet Virginia”.
