Andy Black Releases New Video For “Westwood Road”

Singer-songwriter Andy Black has returned with “Westwood Road,” the first track and video off his much-anticipated sophomore album, The Ghost Of Ohio (Lava/Republic).

The Ghost Of Ohio will be released April 12th.

Black will support the long-awaited new album with The Ghost of North America Tour, a headlining run that will kick off April 7th at Ace of Spades in Sacramento, CA (see itinerary below).

The Ghost Of Ohio sees Black re-teaming with Grammy nominated producer John Feldmann (Blink-182, Panic! at the Disco), who helmed 2016’s acclaimed debut The Shadow Side. “Westwood Road” was mixed by Grammy winner Neil Avron (Twenty One Pilots, Thirty Seconds To Mars). The new album is semi-autobiographical, mining the haunted history of Black’s hometown to tell a story that explores his childhood anxieties and obsessions.

Black, who’s always had a reverence for the magical convergence of sight and sound, created the diverse album to also serve as a soundtrack for its graphic novel counterpart, marrying melancholy themes with upbeat rock and pop to tell the tale of someone who died young and whose spirit inhabits an area for a hundred years looking for ways to connect. The album’s artwork was painted by Eliran Kantor (Iced Earth, Testament).
