In preparation for the release of his new album Covering Ground, Chuck Ragan has teamed up with Rolling Stone to offer afree download/stream of the track “Get What You Give.” Ragan commented on the theme of the song saying:
“There is always a struggle finding balance doing what we love. Above all, holding true to that original passion rather than sinking into a self-absorbed world which is addicted to self-gratification, attention and spotlight. In the end, it comes down to a single choice of how we decide to treat people and ourselves. What goes around comes around; and sooner or later whether we like it or not, we will get what we give.”
Covering Ground will hit stores on September 13th.
