Less than a year after releasing their debut LP High and Tight, Nashville pop band Republican Hair will release a new LP which pays homage to two recently-deceased musical legends, Prince and David Bowie.
The album, The Prince and The Duke, is slated to release July 14. The album’s first single, “Miss Prince” is slated for digital and (purple) vinyl release on Prince’s birthday, June 7. The second single, “Constellation” is a melodic reflection on Bowie’s legacy and the lightning bolt-shaped constellation named for him posthumously. The track will be released on June 16, in celebration of Ziggy’s 25th anniversary.
Republican Hair is a side project from songwriter/filmmaker Luke Dick, who co-wrote Eric Church’s “Kill A Word.” In 2011, Dick co-wrote The Rolling Stones and Philosophy: It’s Just a Thought Away and has a master’s in philosophy. He has taught at multiple institutions, including Nashville State, CUNY, St. Francis, St. John’s, and even a stint in Singapore.
Republican Hair will be touring with Wheeler Walker, Jr., and has a show slated for June 2 at Nashville’s Exit/In.
