Released on Friday 11 August, ‘The Devil Works All Year Long’ is the new single from Kimberly Morgan York.
Kimberly Morgan York returns with an upbeat, bluegrass track, with plenty of pedal steel guitar, honky tonk piano, and tinges of gospel as she tells a cautionary tale of being always alert to the temptations of the devil – and the temptations are everywhere – even in church – and all year long. You can think you’re immune to it all but then the devil comes along in the guise of your husband’s cousin, flirting with you; he doesn’t take a day off either, so there’s no point thinking you’ve avoided it all by staying in at Halloween: he’s going to catch you any day of the week or the year. He works all year long and takes no vacation days.
Of course, Kimberly Morgan York’s vocals are temptation itself; perhaps she’s the devil in disguise herself, with her voice calling to us and drawing us in, as she’s accompanied by a slew of fast-paced instrumentalists on guitar, drums, and piano. She’s impossible to resist, and well, perhaps we don’t want to?
‘The Devil Works All Year Long’ is out now. Watch out for Kimberly Morgan York’s upcoming album, ‘Devil Songs And Other Such Nonsense’, and find out more about Kimberly Morgan York and her music online on Instagram, Facebook, and her official website.
