Here in the UK, we have had the pleasure of listening to Jarrod Dickenson’s brilliant album, ‘Ready the Horses’, for some time but it is now getting a much-deserved world-wide release on 22nd May. Dickenson is known for his soulful voice and knack for great song-writing and storytelling. It all comes together on this album. Ahead of the upcoming ‘Ready the Horses’, here is the brand new animated video for ‘Way Past Midnight’, Dickenson’s personal favourite from the record. He says of the song: “This was one of those magical moments in the studio where everything just came together. It’s equal parts gospel and grease. It’s about late nights in seedy dive bars. The possibilities, the thrill, the chase… and the comedic reality of how those nights tend to end up. Recording this tune was pure, unadulterated joy.” The honey-voiced Texan returns to the UK for a few dates this April. You may have seen him previously at Glastonbury, Black Deer and the Cambridge Folk Festival. Dickenson is a great live performer – check him out if you can. Here is our gig review from his tour last autumn.
