The depth and soul of John Moreland’s previous albums, along with his powerfully captivating live performances, have connected deeply with an ever-growing fan base who have fallen in love with his poignant and honest songs. Over the last year or so, Moreland’s perspective on life has shifted just enough to inject a new tone to the songs on Big Bad Luv.
Sonically, the new album rocks a bit heavier than Moreland’s prior work, with a nod to his punk rock roots. Big Bad Luv was recorded at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock, AR and mixed by Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow). For a taste of the new album, check out the video for “It Don’t Suit Me Like Before”, which was recently premiered via Entertainment Weekly. Click HERE.
