TOAD THE WET SPROCKET Release New Single “Best of Me (2023)” Ahead of U.S. Headlining Tour

Toad The Wet Sprocket release a new track “Best of Me (2023)” ahead of their highly anticipated U.S. Headlining tour beginning next month. This version of the track more closely aligns with the version fans hear live.

“We were extremely fortunate to get the legendary Michael McDonald to sing the backups on the song ‘Best of Me’.” It was the lead single from their 2021 release Starting Now. “But, since he was too busy to helicopter out on tour every night, we wanted to release the original version. A frequent request from our fans, especially when we play this on tour,” the band explains.

The single will be included on a revamped greatest hits album ALL YOU WANT (Bonus Edition), available May 26, 2023 on streaming services. That same day, they will launch vinyl and CD pre-orders followed closely by the first date of their U.S. headlining tour which will take them to 40 cities across the country to once again reconnect with their fans and share their music.

Throughout their career, Toad the Wet Sprocket – led by founding members Glen Phillips, Todd Nichols, and Dean Dinning – has remained committed to creating music that is both meaningful and accessible. Their songs are filled with introspective lyrics, melodic guitars and vocal harmonies that have resonated with fans for decades. As part of their 2023 ALL YOU WANT Tour, audiences can expect to hear classic hits as well as deep cut favorites from the band’s extensive catalog.
