LISTEN: The Bittersweets, “Livin’ on the Edge”

Jun 11, 2021

Hometown: Nashville, Tennessee
Song: “Livin’ on the Edge” (Aerosmith cover)
Release Date: June 11, 2021
Label: Compass Records

In Their Words: “After wearing this record to death as a kid and subsequently growing away from it, ‘Livin’ on the Edge’ came on the radio at some point during the last year and we looked at each other and said, ‘Oh my gosh — this could have been written in 2020.’ We set out to create a version of the song for today, converting a ’90s Aerosmith hard rock song into a meditative acoustic folk ballad. And we must meditate on these important questions. From the persistent fight for racial justice to the pandemic to the eventual storming of the Capitol, it really feels like we are all living on the edge right now, staring at a precipice that will either remind us who we are or ultimately be our demise.” – Chris Meyers, The Bittersweets
