In preparation for his new album due out August 3rd on Yep Roc, Jim Lauderdale has released his new single ‘Wearing Out Your Cool’. Powered by a slinky noir sax line and female backing vocals, the 60s spy-thriller groove with a touch of twang comes from one of two records the two-time Grammy-Award winning Nashville legend is releasing on the same date — the other being Jim Lauderdale and Roland White. Both are “new albums,” but only ‘Time Flies’ was recently recorded. The other, Jim Lauderdale and Roland White, is a bluegrass collection originally recorded at the home of Earl and Louise Scruggs in 1979. Look out for reviews of both soon on AUK.
