You may be stuck at work right now, but it will always be quitting time on a Friday when you press play on “The Weekend” by Allen Stone. He has always been one to get us moving with his extensive vocal range and the full use of live instruments, and he does it again with his latest single, one of the seven soulful songs that will be added bonus tracks when his album, Radius (Deluxe Edition), is released on March 25th.
Allen Stone’s band, with Steve Watkins on keys and Jason Holt on drums, opens the song with a mid-tempo rhythm. Stone then gives us a jolt to get us moving and grooving with, “Hallelujah, it’s Friday!” After a steady chorus and a slowing bridge, Allen does what he does best and goes into all-out mode and turns the volume all the way up singing about everyone’s favorite days off.
Allen’s ode to the weekend gives us a jovial song that is certain to lift your spirits no matter what day of the week it is. Get “The Weekend” started early by giving this tune a spin and pre-order Radius (Deluxe) from iTunes now to get instant downloads of this jam and “Voodoo.”
