Following the release of their new album Songs for Somewhere Else out on Crimson Crow, London’s cosmic country folk band The Hanging Stars have released their new single “For You (My Blue Eyed Son)”, which coincides with their tour with GospelbeacH, which starts on Monday, 28 May in Brighton.
“For You (My Blue Eyed Son)” is co-written by main guitarist and singer Richard Olson (The See See/Eighteenth Day Of May) and guitarist and keyboard player Patrick Ralla (Alan Tyler Show, Edwin Colilns). It is perhaps the most traditionally country song on their Songs For Somewhere Else album, with two-part lead vocal continuing throughout, supported by finger-picked guitars and classic drum shuffle.
Taking cues from both sides of the Atlantic, they mainline the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes, transforming them into an energized new sound for our times.
