Lambchop Announce New Album, ‘Mr. M’

Visiting Australia for January’s Sydney Festival, we’re pleased to be releasing Lambchop’s new album Mr. M on February 24 – a string filled, soulful record dedicated to Kurt Wagner’s dear friend and collaborator Vic Chestnutt. It’s such a beautifully weighted album – so personal and delicate in acoustics, but rich with string swells and southern guitars. You can read all about the album here, and stream its opening song below.
