Arkansas rocker Jesse Welles pulls at every heartstring with the release of his heart-wrenching single, “Seventeen.” Telling a tale of nostalgia and sorrow, Welles’ single builds anticipation for his upcoming debut album, Red Trees and White Trashes, set for release via 300 Entertainment.

Produced and mixed by Grammy winners Dave Cobb and Andrew Scheps, the song begins with the strums of an acoustic guitar, but don’t let it fool you–this is not your stereotypical singer/songwriter acoustic tune. Building to a rock anthem-like chorus, Welles sings about the loss of innocence everyone experiences in their teenage years. With talk of guilt and the haunting of our youth, it’s hard not to feel the hurt behind the lyrics. The song does a perfect job capturing the pain of our pasts while also having a longing to go back.
