My Jerusalem releasing ‘A Little Death’ (stream “Young Leather” ft. Elle King)
Austin’s My Jerusalem, the band led by Jeff Klein (who’s played with Greg Dulli in Twilight Singers, Gutter Twins and more), will follow 2012’s Preachers with a new album called A Little Death on June 24 via Washington Square Music. The band already released the single “Rabbit Rabbit” and we’re premiering another track, “Young Leather,” which features guest vocals by Elle King. Talking about the song, Jeff said:
I wrote ‘Young Leather’ after watching one of my friends talk to 30 different girls on Tinder while we were sitting at the bar one night. It’s about temptation and how it seems everyone these days is always looking to “upgrade”. The boozy, sexy swagger the baritone sax added to the song made it a no brainer to ask our friend Elle King to add some background vocals. I love our voices together.
It does indeed have a boozy, sexy swagger. Check it out below. Album artwork, tracklist, and a stream of the previous single below too.
