“I Got A Friend”
The New Pearly Gates
From the upcoming CD, Through It All (2011)
The New Pearly Gates of Suffolk, VA are gearing up for the release of a brand new CD. In the meantime, I’m listening to the single, “I Got A Friend,” and I dig it.
There’s nothing fancy about it, and that’s a good thing. Sometimes less is more. “I Got A Friend” has a simple hook, easy-to-learn verses and a pretty basic chord structure. It’s an uptempo declaration of the unfailing devotion of Jesus, and we all can testify to that!
