Jenny Queen to release new album 'Small Town Misfits' on May 23

 

‘Small Town Misfits’ is the follow up album to Queen’s critically acclaimed 2009 release ‘After The Dance’. ‘Small Town Misfits’, the third album from Sydney-based US songstress Jenny Queen, will be released on May 23, 2014 through ABC Music / Universal.

The album takes the small town life through a song cycle that packs an emotional wallop. Like many great country albums before it, ‘Small Town Misfits’ comes with swings, roundabouts and sucker punches. You can feel the pulse of its powerful themes of loss, redemption, abuse and love.  

Produced by ARIA Award-winning artist Shane Nicholson, and recorded at his Copacabana studio, ‘Small Town Misfits’ is a collection of thirteen dark, soulful alt-country tunes, featuring vocals from Brooke McClymontShane Nicholson and Matthew Ryan. Nicholson’s subtle and powerful production cuts to the heart of Queen’s lyrical concerns. Each song traverses the vagaries of this small town of the mind; the narrator’s unmistakable voice is your guide, a lone rider in a beat-up car with only cigarettes and radio for company. 

The green apple quickstep of lead single ‘Blood Meridian’ is an album highlight, driven by the song’s powerful westward dream lyrics; “Bleeding west/ like a burning mark”.
