Holiday exclusive: Download Jonny Lang’s ‘Seasons’

The Grammy-winning guitarist is offering the song as a free download for USA TODAY readers.


Grammy-winning rock and blues guitarist Jonny Lang has a holiday treat for his fans — a free download of his song Seasons, available exclusively through USA TODAY.

Seasons is a different kind of holiday song, about a man who struggles with conflicting emotions during the holidays, watching the children “carrying on without a care” around a decorated house and tree while dwelling on his own shortcomings. The song appears on Fight for My Soul, Lang’s first studio album in seven years.

Lang says he initially wrote Seasons as a therapeutic exercise, never intending to put it on an album. But producer Tommy Sims eventually convinced him to include it on Fight for My Soul, and Lang has since called it the album track of which he’s most proud.
