The music for this week is pretty ridiculous, mostly in a good way. Here are the newest nuggets we are listening to this week.
Hollywood Vampires – Heroes
Johnny Depp grabs the microphone as The Vampires release another song from their upcoming album. This one, a spot on cover of the David Bowie song, should be superb listening live and in concert.
Tanya Tucker – The Wheels of Laredo
Tanya Tucker, the female country music OG, has released her first new song in 17 years. Produced and written by Brandi Carlisle and Shooter Jennings, her new record should be terrific. Without Tanya there would be no Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, or dare I say it, Nikki Lane.
Chris Stapleton – The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy
It’s good to be Chris Stapleton these days. Here he is between albums killing the this ode to Woody in the new Toy Story 4.
Ida Mae – Reaching
A little dark, a bit moody and on the Delta Blues side, the new Ida Mae record, Chasing Lights, could be featured on the new season of True Detective.
Mark Lanegan – Playing Nero
Walking down the same dimly lit streets as Scott Walker, here, Mark Lanegan once again shows he can do Nick Cave almost as well as the original.
Noel Gallaghers’s High Flying Birds – Rattling Rose
Don’t look for any Oasis scraps to be laid down on this one. Noel has been there, done that. His upcoming E.P. is a bit of a disco dusted affair, and deliberately so. Don’t worry if this song is any indication it should be a lot of fun.
Jesse Malin – Room 13
Always big fans of anything Jessie Malin puts out, his upcoming record, Sunset Kids, is set up to be top 10 worthy. His latest song from the set to be released in August features the always sublime Lucinda Williams.
Glorious Sons – Panic Attack
This new single from the upcoming album shows signs that a couple of albums in The Glorious Sons are turning into a fully formed high-spirited Rock and Roll band right before our very ears.
Sheryl Crow – Prove You Wrong
No real new musical ground broken here, but anytime Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, and Maren Morris collabo on a project it is worth a look and a listen.
