Jim Lauderdale recorded his latest project, London Southern, in a whirlwind of inspiration during a tour of England and Scotland, and he enlisted the help of Nick Lowe’s touring band (Robert Trehern on drums; Matt Radford on bass; Steve Donnelly on guitar; Geraint Watkins on keyboards) to help capture the magic of the moment.
Produced by Neil Brockbank and Robert Trehern in two sessions at London’s Gold Top Studios, and due out June 30, London Southern is Lauderdale’s 29th album. Yesterday (4/27) American Songwriter premiered the first song from London Southern, “You Came to Get Me” a track that is available for instant download with every album pre-order.
“I wanted a different sound, kind of a throwback to the early ’60s. All the players had the same sort of experience I did, only from where they were. So it was that thing of how much British musicians loved American music, and how they interpreted our roots, then we interpreted them. They love a lot of the same things I do, only from a very different perspective…it was very American to British to America to Britain to America to, well, here. And sonically, I really put myself in Neil’s hands. He got things that were very unique, and fresh, and captured that feeling I was after.”
