New Lucero Album Has Title, Release Date

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2009 at 1:37 PM

7b1b/1247855915-lucero1_alanspearman.jpgThe new Lucero album, the Memphis band's first for major-label Universal/Republic Records, will be released on October 6th. The title is 1372 Overton Park, named after the address of the band's longtime living space, a second-story loft at the corner of Overton Park and Cleveland, to which the band is new bidding farewell.

Recorded at Ardent with producer Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem) and the introduction of a horn section arranged by local sax great Jim Spake, 1372 Overton Park adds a dose of Memphis soul to the band's already varied and ambitious punk/country/classic-rock mix.

For a first taste of what the new album sounds like, you can listen to the track "The Devil and Maggie Chascarillo" — Springsteen meets Southern rock — on the band's web site,
