Published Oct 25, 2010Considering it's been a couple of months since working-class rockers the Gaslight Anthem released their third Springsteen-indebted disc American Slang, the New jersey outfit think it's high time they get some new material to their fans. While it comes nowhere close to another full-length, an upcoming seven-inch will have to sate fans for now.
A report from Punknews explains that the quick collection features two exclusive cuts. The first is a cover of the Rolling Stones' love-'em-and-leave-'em rambler "Tumbling Dice," from 1972's Exile on Main Street, which is sure to find Gaslight singer Brian Fallon dropping at least one of his verses raspier than Keith Richards after a 40-year bender. The flip side is a leftover from the American Slang sessions titled "She Loves You." While it would be cooler if Gaslight Anthem were going for some sort of Beatles vs. Stones thing, it seems as if this one is an original. The record will also be pressed in four different colours: baby blue, white, black and brown.
The Gaslight Anthem's "Tumbling Dice"/"She Loves You" seven-inch comes out November 26 via SideOneDummy.
