Kickstarting 2024 with the release of his brand new single, “Fill Up My Tank”, is the singer-songwriter and musician, Mark Newman. The track, penned by Chris Armata, is now available across all major music services, promising listeners a captivating musical experience. This acts as the follow-up to the 2022 single “At The Border”.

The inspiration for “Fill Up My Tank” stems from a road trip taken on a motorcycle, capturing the essence of the open road and the adventures it holds. Newman, known for his diverse musical talents, was drawn to the song while working on Armata’s original version in the studio. At this time, Armata decided Newman should cover the song, stating to him, “It’s more in your wheelhouse.” The acoustic guitar, the Dobro, and the finger snaps by Armata, accompanied by Mike Hall’s skilful Upright Bass, create a melodic masterpiece that showcases Newman’s musical prowess.

The lyrics of “Fill Up My Tank” paint a vivid picture of a journey down a long road, facing challenges and overcoming obstacles. The catchy chorus and Newman’s soulful delivery add depth to the narrative, making it a must-listen for fans of Americana and rock.

Rich vocals effortlessly portray the lyrics of the track siding brilliantly with the guitar rhythms and the deep bass. Newman brings some rock grit to the Americana groove, adding a sense of relaxed strength that not many musicians can pull off. If this is not on your road trip playlist, you’re the one missing out.

Newman’s rich musical history includes collaborations with soul, blues, and rock legends such as John Oates, Jim McCarty, Willy DeVille, and more. These experiences have seen him go on to share stages with stars like Sting, Elvis Costello, and Travis Tritt. Currently touring with The Hitmen and The Blues Project, Newman continues to make a mark in the international music scene.

Newman’s most recent studio album, “Empirical Truth”, garnered recognition as the 2019 Winner of The Long Island Blues Society Best Album Category. One of his more recent singles, “Tulsa”, has gone on to become his most popular song on Spotify, gaining over 50,000 streams, the song and video of which was created in remembrance of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. His follow-up track, “At The Border”, was originally inspired by the struggles and experiences that Ukrainians were going through as they were fleeing the war, but it later coalesced into a track that was influenced by the millions of people around the world who are trying to escape oppression and hunger on an ongoing basis.
