Billy The Kid 7" Single Premiere
You've waited long enough...so here it is...the new 7" single from Billy The Kid & The Soulful Saints! Premiering now via the good folks at Vinyl Mag. Listen here
The follow-up to the 2015 debut single "Save a Little Love for a Rainy Day," "Heartstrings" was recorded and mixed on an 8-track tape machine and showcases Billy The Kid's refined production skills, with compositions relying heavily on the sound of the Maestro Rhythm King drum machine, Farfisa organ, and piano. Falsetto vocals and the lush string sound of The Hartstrings round out the arrangements and harken back to an era when soul 45s were king. Composed of members from Charles Bradley's Extraordinaires, The Dap-Kings and The Shacks, The Soulful Saints serve as the perfect backing band for these vocal features and they shine on the Allen Toussaint-inspired instrumental cut, Hit and Run.
