Today, Seth Walker shares "I Must Be In A Good Place Now," his reimagination of the classic Bobby Charles' song originally released on the Louisiana singer/songwriter's eponymous 1972 debut album. Walker's rendition was produced by his longtime collaborator Jano Rix (The Wood Brothers), who also contributes piano, and features Matt Glassmeyer on tenor and alto saxophone. Its pastoral sway evokes a beautiful, but fleeting, lazy summer day where clarity can be found in both the past and present.

"This song has always spoken to me since the first time I heard it on the back porch of a friend's house in Decatur, Georgia. It transported me far away and slowed everything down. I love the place the lyrics and melody take the listener. The 'sunshine coming-through' images are forever framed in my mind," explains Walker. "The song was originally released by Bobby Charles in 1972—the year I was born. I have played it live through the years, and it was in the running for my last album, I Hope I Know. I ended up choosing another one of Charles' masterpieces, “Tennessee Blues,” as it seemed to gel more with the album's mood and tone, but I always knew I'd return to it at some point and get it out there into the world." 

Seth Walker's version of "I Must Be In A Good Place Now" is available today on all streaming platforms and is accompanied by a homespun video filmed by Walker and his father Scott Walker in Asheville, NC. 

Walker tours throughout the summer of 2023 with select festival and venue performances, including Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, AVLFestRedding Roots Revival and Sisters Folk Festival
