Some good news comes our way from Jesse Malin – who not only has a new album ready to release but by jingo it’s a double album, the first of Malin’s career. It’s called ‘Sad And Beautiful World ‘ and is out on September 24th on Wicked Cool Records. It’s a collection of heartfelt and eloquent short stories, ‘Sad And Beautiful World’ was forged in the lost pandemic year and takes its title from a line of dialogue in Jim Jarmusch’s 1986 cult-classic film Down By Law. Jesse Malin says of the album “My music has always been about rebirth and redemption. Sad And Beautiful World is for those who pick up the pieces and find beauty in the madness.”
There’s a first sample of what’s to come in the shape of a single – ‘State of the Art‘, which finds Jesse Malin in a characteristically rocking mood and with a message to pass on “they still drink the cool-aid where you come from / You walk around town with your collar up / And you never got off on that racist stuff.” Damn right.
