Andy Frasco & The U.N. - Can't Force Love

A slightly dirty guitar sound, pentatonic riff-making, and a gospel-inflected backdrop inform this heartfelt soul-message about patience, and the mercurial nature of love. With a wistful spotlight on the early moments of an attraction, it’s easy to see the precious and vulnerable nature of that spark.

You step back to get closer, and get quiet to be heard; nothing makes sense, and it’s not supposed to. The best love will test your strength, and your ability to let go, because that’s what makes your heart bigger.

“Whenever you need a man
you know I’m here for you
I don’t know: am I moving too fast?
Do you know: am I part of your plans?”— Andy Frasco & The U.N.

With their new single Can't Force Love, cruise-rockers Andy Frasco & The U.N. keep the party flowing with a gentle reminder not to sweat the small stuff. This road-tested band of brothers reveals their sensitive side with an empathetic ballad about keeping your eye on the prize.
