Track premiere: Lindi Ortega “You Ain’t Foolin’ Me”

‘Liberty’ is the new album from Lindi Ortega – due out in May, it was recorded in East Nashville and produced by Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Rayland Baxter), and she’s shared the track ‘You Ain’t Foolin’ Me’ exclusively with AUK this morning. With a dark undercurrent and some great production, she told us: “Some southerners say the phrase “bless your heart” may have negative connotations, and while it appears like a lovely thing to say, it is sometimes meant in a mean-spirited way. I was drawing from that concept when I wrote this song. The mean folks parading as angels but we know they ain’t no angels.” Ortega is embarking on an extensive world tour in support of the new record, reaching the UK in early June. Dates below.
