Richard Youngs Heads to Ba Da Bing for 'Summer in My Mind,' Premieres Title Track
Published Jul 18, 2013Ridiculously prolific UK musician Richard Youngs is once again heading off into uncharted territories, having announced an apparently country-flavoured full-length called Summer in My Mind. The record will be his first LP for Ba Da Bing, and it hits retailers September 3.
A press release notes that the set aims for "the heart of American music," with the country-flecked sessions marked by Youngs' "slide-guitar, heartfelt vocals, [and] dark lyricism."
Parts of the project began taking shape years ago, as it's apparently pulled from a short story Youngs wrote as a child about "bad people and dark spirits," but the record also includes lyrics penned by his six-year-old son. Simon Joyner also contributes vocals to "Story of Jhon."
A tracklisting has yet to pop up, but you can stream the laid-back, strummy title track down below.
