'Mr. M' previews continue...

Lambchop are giving away their new track 'Gone Tomorrow' as a free download.

Reconvening after a lengthy break, Lambchop have the weight of history on their shoulders. The band's back catalogue contains some absolute gems, with Kurt Wagner carving out a niche as a uniquely urbane, literate songwriter.

'Mr. M' will be released on February 20th, with Kurt Wagner being partially inspired by his love of painting. Previews are coming thick and fast, with the latest track to emerge from the album being 'Gone Tomorrow'.

Opening as a gentle, soothing country ballad the track then fades almost to silence... before the guitar effects kick in, organ sounds pan from speaker to speaker and the fast, organic percussion lifts 'Gone Tomorrow' into a whole other place.

Lambchop - Gone Tomorrow by cityslang

Kurt Wagner recently mused on the creative process behind the new album. Left alone with his paint and brushes, the songwriter was gently nudged back into the recording process.

“As I worked, I was approached by Mark Nevers (former full time band member & producer for the likes of Andrew Bird and Will Oldham) with the idea of making another Lambchop record. He had a concept of a sound and a method that worked with the tone of my writing. His idea was a kind of ‘psycha-Sinatra’ sound, one that involved the arranging of strings and other sounds in a more open and yet complex way."

"It was a studio creation, not a type of recording based on band performance, and this was a radical approach for us. I felt Lambchop had one more good record in us, and this time I was going to do things as directly and true to my desires as possible.”

Lambchop are set to release 'Mr. M' on February 20th. Live dates are as follows:

1 London Barbican
3 Dublin Vicar's Street
4 Gateshead Sage
5 Glasgow Oran Mor
6 Manchester Cathedral
7 Bristol Fleece
