From Van Hunt's album What Were You Hoping For? comes "Eyes Like Pearls" - a guitar driven, tenison building, carefully crafted love song. There's an element of grease/grit to this that doesn't make you feel too overly sappy but the song itself was written so well that by the end of it you've fallen in love with love all over again.
Van Hunt is currently out on tour and has put together a contest on his Facebook page that ties in with the single to give entrants a chance to win a pair of tickets to a show on his tour. To enter, upload a photo to Van's wall that reminds you of, or is inspired by "Eyes Like Pearls". If the winner who is unable to make it to any of the shows, they will receive an autographed copy of What Were You Hoping For? in addition to being featured on Van's blog on his website.
What Were You Hoping For? drops on September 27th, which you can pre-order over on his website.
