Though not scheduled to be released until September 29th, Baeble favs Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons
are already rolling out bits and pieces from their highly anticipated full-length debut Death Won't Send A Letter
. That there title might be the case, but the Cory camp was kind enough to send us the album's first single, "Born Again" earlier today.
More full-bodied than anything we've heard from Chisel before (though the fact that it was co-written by Brendan Benson might have something to do with that), the track features Count Dracula style organ blasts, drunken plunks on a standup bass, huge smacks on the snare, and a rebel rousing chorus worth reveling in. The tune's also a fitting tribute to the wild, delirious sort of lifestyle the young singer probably finds himself caught up in every now and then. Spouting lines like "I've been feeling like my old self again/Because mama didn't raise me to be no Christian", and "I've been living in a motel of sin/But I wouldn't trade my life for the one you're living" Cory loads "Born Again" with the kind of tongue in cheek we can appreciate.
Check out a free download of the song below, and catch Chisel at any of his mostly mid-western string of dates below. For a taste of Mr. Chisel live, also check out our video from Electric Lady Studios, below. - David Pitz
