Lydia Loveless

Alt-country singer Lydia Loveless put out a new single, "Mile High" (with a cover of Ke$ha's "Blind" on the flip), this past Record Store Day on lime green vinyl, limited to 1000 copies. If you weren't one of the lucky ones who picked it up on RSD, a regular edition will be released on May 27 via Bloodshot (pre-order on iTunes or Amazon), but before that you can listen to a stream of "Mile High," which premieres in this post.

It follows this year's Somewhere Else LP, and if you liked that album's twangy Stevie Nicks-meets-Petty/Springsteen swagger, you'll dig this too. Plus, it contains the lyric: "And I was thinking of things I'd do if I had the time until my fingers smell like pussy and Lucky Strikes." Listen below.

Lydia has multiple tour dates coming up, including a previously announced run with Old 97's which hits NYC on June 3 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Updated dates (including some newly-announced shows), with the song stream, below...

Serious pipes, bad attitude--what's not to like?

I'm going to preorder these right now. Lydia and Kesha are my two favorite girls in music, so the Blind cover is everything. If Kesha covers Hurts So Bad, I'll be truly happy.
