Listen to Black Country, New Road’s alternate acoustic version of ‘Track X’

The original song featured on the band's acclaimed debut album 'For The First Time'

Black Country, New Road have shared an alternate acoustic version of their song ‘Track X’ – you can hear this take on the track below.

The original song recently featured on the band’s debut album ‘For The First Time’, which came out back in February.

Black Country, New Road have this afternoon (May 18) shared ‘Track X (The Guest)’, an alternate version of ‘Track X’.


The song was first performed solo by frontman Isaac Wood prior to the formation of Black Country, New Road, and features Wood’s vocals and his acoustic guitar. You can hear ‘Track X (The Guest)’ below.

“This version is where the lyrics for ‘Track X’ originally came from,” Wood explained in a statement. “It’s an old story, with some simple guitar playing and has the extra lyrics in the chorus.

“It’s “The Guest” version, written about two years ago in this format, and we thought it would make for a good accomplice to the album.”

Black Country, New Road will embark on a socially distanced UK tour next month before heading out on another headline UK and Ireland tour in November.
