Lydia Loveless giving RSD single “Mile High” a wider release (stream it +++ updated tour dates)
by Andrew Sacher
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.
