Nomadic singer-songwriter Cass McCombs is set to release his second album of the year within the next month. In an age where most bands put out one album every two years, McCombs has managed to flip the ratio... prolific to say the least, but not all the material is 100% new. A song from the upcoming Humor Risk was is now available to stream down below. "Robin Egg Blue (Gun Drum Mix)" is a new mix of a song off of McCombs' last release Wit's End. The track features McCombs' acoustic guitar and smooth voice over a driving drum beat, given some texture in the form of a sprawling keyboard riff provided by producer and Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij. Check it out below and pick up Humor Risk when it comes out on 11/8.
