Black Lips New Album Sing in a World That's Falling Apart New Song Gentleman Stream

Atlanta rock outfit The Black Lips returned last month with a new single, “Odelia”, in anticipation of their follow-up to 2017’s Satan’s Graffiti or God’s Art?. Now, the band has announced details of their ninth full-length, Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart, which drops on January 24th. They’ve also shared a second single in “Gentleman”.

Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart was recorded direct-to-tape, returning The Black Lips to their lo-fi roots. But this is hardly a retread of the band’s earlier garage rock efforts. The Black Lips have undergone several lineup changes over the last few years, and Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart will be their first LP with new guitarist Jeff Clarke, previously of Demon’s Claws, as well as drummer Oakley Munson from The Witnesses.

Perhaps the new members are behind the shift in direction, or maybe The Black Lips are just exaggerating the twang that was always lurking underneath. Like we heard on “Odelia”, The Black Lips display a more pronounced country sound on “Gentleman”. Hear for yourself below.

While January 24th might seem a long way away, pre-orders for Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart are ongoing. The Black Lips have also added six Florida stops to the announced tour, and you can take a look at all the remaining shows below. Get those tickets here.
