Lauderdale’s New Single
A new single will be featured on Lauderdale’s upcoming summer album of the same name. In Jim Lauderdale’s new single, “Time Flies”, the music flawlessly arrests the poignant feeling of time passing. Its lyrics tell of a love that “almost made it until the curtain call”, but ultimately met its end with a usual emotional chaos. Lauderdale penned the song together with Mando Saenz. Here we can see how brilliant Lauderdale’s skill as a songwriter and performer is. Moreover, he is capable of always crafting great music to mix polishes that add up to relevant pieces of Americana gold.
On August 3, Lauderdale will actually have two album releases in addition to Time Flies. Jim Lauderdale and Roland White will also come out, featuring recently uncovered recordings made in 1979, with the mandolin legend.
