Taking Back Sunday's Adam Lazzara Goes Folk on "Because It Works"

Longtime Taking Back Sunday fans are probably aware that frontman Adam Lazzara knows his way around a harmonica and acoustic guitar. But never before has the punk singer gone full-folk for an officially released solo track...until now. Fuse is proud to exclusively host the premiere of Lazzara's solo track "Because It Works," an energetic, expertly crafted folk-rock number from the Taking Back Sunday frontman.

"Because It Works" is Lazzara's contribution to the Our Voices EP from I Surrender Records, an upcoming comp that features original songs performed by the singers from several other punk bands such as Saves the Day, Bayside and I Am the Avalanche. 

"I spend so much time with my acoustic guitar but I haven't taken the opportunity to release any of that material until now," Lazzara tells Fuse. "The bare bones for this song were written while I was living in Texas but it didn't come together until I got the offer to be on Our Voices. 'Because It Works' is as honest as can be and marks, hopefully, the first of many more to come."

Listen to "Because It Works" above, pre-order Our Voices on iTunes and head over to I Surrender Records' site to pick up Our Voices on vinyl, with or without a limited-edition poster.
