    (July 30, 2022) Legendary Soul Vocalist William Bell will release his first new music since 2016's Grammy Award winning album "This Is Where I Live".

    The lead single entitled "One Day Closer To Home" will be released near the end of August 2022 followed by a full length album in September, both on the Wilbe Records imprint.

    The song, which serves as the title track for the album, is about true freedom and going home in every sense of the word. It's a "back to basics" formula musically with great lyrics, melody and ultimately a superb vocal performance by Bell. Whether it's labeled Soul, Blues or Americana, this is a definitive lesson in song craftsmanship.

    Having taught songwriting master classes, the new single exemplifies William's main point when teaching: "Tell a story that is relatable to daily life." 

    The forthcoming "One Day Closer To Home" does just that.
