John Murry is releasing a new EP titled Califorlornia. Release date June 16th on vinyl and digital. Listen to the first offering from the singer-songwriter’s forthcoming EP, Califorlornia below.
JOHN MURRY WILL follow the broken and bruised beauty of 2012’s The Graceless Age (awarded the full five stars in MOJO) with a new four-track EP, Califorlornia.
Glass Slipper – written by Murry and Chuck Prophet – is a panoramic Americana ballad that recalls the Tupelo native’s 2013 single Southern Sky as well as The Band’s cover of early ’60s soul gem Share Your Love (With Me), its bright melodies casting a thin veil over the sort of maudlin meditations that made the songs on The Graceless Age so compelling.
Recorded in Oakland and Australia, Califorlornia also features Golden State (another Chuck Prophet co-write), Genius (a cover of Warren Zevon and Larry Klein’s 2002 track) and Timmy (a tribute to Murry’s producer Tim Mooney recorded produced and mixed in Australia by our very own Gaynor Crawford presents tour manager Mark Stanley).
While we patiently wait for the new EP John aired a new video clip over Easter for the track The Ballad of the Pajama Kid
