The long-awaited new record from Hayes Carll will be released on April 8. Lovers and Leavers was produced by Joe Henry and promises to highlight Carll’s more introspective songwriting.
NPR Music is featuring the track “The Love That We Need” and does not disappoint. This is going to be a helluva record.
(BTW, over the holidays, I was fortunate to see Carll at The Mucky Duck in Houston. All of the new material he played was top-notch, and he was joined on a few songs by singer-songwriter Allison Moorer, who also co-wrote “The Love That We Need” along with Jack Ingram.)
