13th Floor New Song Of The Day: Lucero – Outrun The Moon

Here we go, get that long weekend underway with this new song from Memphis alt-country rockers Lucero.

The song is Outrun The Moon and it will appear on the band’s next album, When You Found Me, due out January 29th. Here’s ye olde record company blurb with deets:

Lucero reunites with GRAMMY Award-winner Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Drive-by Truckers) who produced their 2018 acclaimed album Among The GhostsWhen You Found Me was recorded in the band’s home town of Memphis, TN at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Studio. Listen to intense first track Outrun The Moon.

When You Found Me finds Lucero founder Ben Nichols lyrically ruminating on family, while the band continues to evolve musically after 20 plus years. When You Found Me finds the group tapping into a more atmospheric widescreen vision, while expanding on their sound with heavier rock sonics. The use of keyboard player Rick Steff’s extensive collection of vintage synthesizers conjures an aural world of classic tracks with a firm foot in the present. Nichols, Steff and bandmates Brian Venable (guitar), Roy Berry (drums) and John C. Stubblefield (bass) uphold the urgency of past Lucero releases, while moving forward in both sound, writing and texture.

For over two decades, Lucero has made their mark as a hard-working band, mixing heartfelt lyrics with the sounds of early rock and roll, classic punk, country-folk and deep-friend Southern soul. They have delivered their powerhouse sound night after night to legions of fans across the country, providing adrenaline-charged shows in a communal atmosphere. With When You Found Me it is clear that Lucero has earned their rightful place in the annals of Southern Rock musical heroes.
