Koe Wetzel Shows Off His Country Chops On Sad Breakup Song “Three Weeks,” From His Fifth Studio Album ‘Hell Paso’

I couldn’t stop listening Hell Paso.

From early standouts like “Oklahoma Sun” and “Yella Bush Road”, Aside from a few sleepers like “Better Without You” and “Sad Song”, I can safely say that it’s already one of my favorite albums of the year.

And there is one that I particularly love, namely “Three Weeks”.

Obviously Koe isn’t really into the ‘country’ genre and definitely leans more towards the rock and grunge side when it comes to his sound (which you’ll definitely find on most of this record), but this one is a good old fashioned one Country song if I’ve ever heard one.

A solo song by Koe, the production is fairly simple and producer Taylor Kimball really lets the song breathe, mostly with simple acoustic guitar backing Koe’s twangy Texas vocals.

That in and of itself is cool to hear as Koe doesn’t do that very often as he usually opts for a louder and more engaging production which I appreciate with his other songs as well and that makes this one all the more special.

And as I mentioned, lyrically it contains some of the best on the entire record. I love the concept that “three weeks” has passed since his breakup as he describes all the things that didn’t take as long as he thought would change after the relationship ended.

On the other hand, there are certain things he misses that have also come to light in the three weeks he’s spent missing this girl alone. It also doesn’t really have a chorus, so listening to it feels like you get a climax in your head and almost hear a surge of consciousness, which really works with a song like this.

He comes to terms with all of this in the last verse, explaining that he cannot go on living like this and needs to find a way to move on with his life:

“Because I hate this relationship
When you’re so sad and I haven’t slept
It’s not good for you to feel this way
And I’ve been drugging this for too long
I’m even pussy enough to sing this song
I can’t believe I saw all of this in three weeks.”

All of the above elements come together so beautifully in this song and if this is any indication of what’s to come on the next project I can’t wait to hear it.

And we already know there’s a lot more where “Three Weeks” came from, as Koe confirmed on the Whiskey Riff Raff Podcast the existence The 90’s country style album is coming and that he has already written quite a bit for it.

He also previewed the first tune of this forthcoming album with the final track Hell Paso, which is tentatively (and possibly permanently) titled “To be continued.” Be sure to check that out as well for a good little teaser on when Koe is going across the country.

Or should we call it “Kountry”? I think it works somehow…

Either way, make sure you download Three Weeks and uncover all 13 tracks from Koe’s fifth studio album… You certainly won’t regret it, and that’s a promise.
