    NPR Music has an exclusive first listen of “These Arms” with an all-new bluegrass twist off Dwight’s upcoming album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… (available September 23!)

    Give it a listen HERE.

    "You can hear Yoakam making masterful choices on every phrase of these new versions: Note how he shifts the way he says the word "ache" on this poignant take on "These Arms," a sexy barroom lament when he first recorded it in 1998. The original reading had a swing to it, like the one a woman's skirt makes when she's dancing close with a partner. This new recording has its own kind of motion, more like that of a porch swing where a woman sits wondering whether her lover will return. That's Yoakam, telling a classic tale in a way that’s just new enough to make it personal again.” - NPR Music
