Smith & Myers — the duo comprised of multi-platinum artists Brent Smith and Zach Myers — release dual songs from their newly-announced full-length album Smith & Myers Volume 2 out Oct. 23 via Atlantic Records, that will follow the release of Volume 1 on October 9.

Original track “Bad at Love” is a vulnerable and personal song about the difficulties of staying in a romantic relationship when you have a gypsy heart, full of clean guitar coils and finger-snaps, and is accompanied by a brand new video directed by Sanjay Parikh.

Brent said, “‘Bad at Love’ was one of the very first original songs to be written for the project. I think ultimately the song was born from my own romantic relationships. When I love someone, I love them fully, and sometimes the passion can be too much. I always know when it’s time to move on. That being said, I am extremely grateful that I am still very good friends with the ladies I have loved, and still love, to this day.”

Zach added, “‘Bad at Love’ was one of the first original songs we wrote for this album … lyrically Brent was writing about things in his life that maybe we wouldn’t really touch on with Shinedown and I think it came out to be an incredibly naked and honest song. And I think ‘Bad Guy’ turned out very cool — it’s a nice bluesy version of the song.”

“Bad at Love” is paired with the release of a grungy, re-imagined version of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy.” Smith & Myers Volume 2 is available for pre-order now and features five original tunes and five re-imaginings of fan-submitted songs including Oasis’s “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer,” Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell,” and R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion.”
