Memphis-soul, punkified country band Lucero has just released their ninth full length studio album Among the Ghosts.
It’s their first for noted Nashville indie label Thirty Tigers. The album was recorded and co-produced with Grammy-winning engineer/producer and fellow Memphis native Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Drive by Truckers) at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Service, the studio built by the legendary producer after outgrowing his Memphis Recording Service/Sun Studio.
Among the Ghosts lays out that new territory with alacrity, as Lucero shines their Morning Star, burning just as brightly, if not more so, 20 years later. As one of the album’s song titles so aptly puts it, “Everything Has Changed”, but one thing hasn’t… Lucero’s music remains more vital than ever.
Missoula concertgoers can hear songs from the new LP played live when Lucero performs live at The Wilma on November 13th. Tickets & more info here.
