New track ‘Gentleman’ sees Black Lips channeling classic country rhythms with an acoustic guitar, a lap steel guitar, and a southern twang.

Known for their visceral live performances, Black Lips aimed to return to the raw sounds that marked their early releases. Shunning Pro-Tools, they recorded Sing In A World That’s Falling Apart directly to 2″ tape.

The new release was recorded and co-produced with Nic Jodoin at Laurel Canyon’s Valentine Recording Studio, which has hosted the likes of Bing Crosby and Beach Boys.

Sing In A World That’s Falling Apart follows 2017’s Satan’s Graffiti Or God’s Art?, and is pressed on red vinyl.
