LUCERO reveal “Can’t You Hear Them Howl”

“CAN’T YOU HEAR THEM HOWL”, LISTEN + SHARE
Following the release of 2012’s Women and Work, Lucero‘s new album All A Man Should Do contains some of the most resonant lyrics Ben Nichols has ever written. They read like chapters from his life: the duality of relationships, getting older, finding where you want to be in this world and more.
“I was 15 years old in 1989,” Nichols explained. “This record sounds like the record I wanted to make when I was 15. It just took 25 years of mistakes to get it done.”
Courtesy of VICE’s Noisey, you can now listen to the horns-heavy track “Can’t You Hear Them Howl” HERE .
The album is also now available for pre-order at iTunes and Amazon as well as the band’swebsite .
Working with producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Flogging Molly) for a third time at Memphis’s Ardent Studios, the band felt comfortable enough to take some chances with a palette of new tones that sound understated yet powerful, bringing life to the stories behind the lyrics without overshadowing them.
And for the first time they put a cover song on a record, with a full band version of Big Star’s “I Fell in Love with a Girl”.  The track features Jody Stephens from Big Star singing back-up vocals, making it that much more special.
This is a Memphis record in the greatest sense and a perfect finish to the three-part love letter to a city that brought them up and made Lucero what they are today.
Sailor Jerry Rum, created in honor of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, the undisputed father of old school tattooing, will present Lucero’s upcoming tour to support the album as part of its Sailor Jerry Presents platform. Head below to see the extensive list of upcoming dates.
