Yelawolf’s hard at work on his third studio solo album, Love Story. In addition to a new look and the motorcycles in lieu of Caprices, the recording for this album has paralleled some personal growth, including an engagement, a return to his Classic Rock roots, and a healthy avoidance of controversy with his peers.

“Till It’s Gone,” which premiered on FX’s “Sons Of Anarchy” last night (September 16) is closer to a more universal sound for the Alabama MC. Like Everlast, Aloe Blacc, Kid Rock, and Cee-Lo, the skilled lyricist is dabbling more in melody and harmony, trying his hands at singing. With a stripped down acoustic beat, this may fall out of genre, from what Heads are used to, but it doesn’t seem reachy or forced.

While Yelawolf has not always succeeded in bringing his skills to albums that appeal to his core and new audiences, is this sort of approach the ticket, especially when he’s showing his sharp bars in other ways?
