Though Yelawolf made his name in Southern-fried rap, on recent releases he’s moved more overtly toward straightforward country music. His latest single “Devil in My Veins” off April’s Love Story makes the transformation complete.
Yelawolf croons about his struggles with addiction over twangy slide guitar, syrupy strings, and gentle drums. He’s released a video for the track, in which he goes full Waylon Jennings.
He lounges in bed with his fiancée Fefe Dobson, blearily strums an acoustic guitar in the morning, and puts on his cowboy hat for a tambourine session under the wide open sky.
