Justin Townes Earle “Faded Valentine” – Listen

Rolling Stone have posted another track from Justin Townes Earle’s forthcoming album “Kids in the Street” which they describe as “a pedal-to-the-metal Memphis boogie… a return to form – with a twist. “Faded Valentine” conjures up Earle’s earlier days, when he’d slow down the cadence and let his rasp get soft and sticky in a relaxed country waltz or honky-tonk shuffle. But it’s also a little more lush instrumentally, thanks to production from Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward), who invited Earle to his Omaha studio to make the LP. It’s the first time Earle has worked with an outside producer, and Mogis made sure to never trade spontaneity for polish.” Listen to the song below.
