Listen: John Moreland's long-gestating ballad 'When My Fever Breaks' to be featured on new album 'LP5'
Listen to critically acclaimed singer-songwriter John Moreland's new song "When My Fever Breaks," which despite its title is actually a gently breezy ballad with a drum-machine beat.
The Tulsa-based performer told me in an interview this week that it took him about three years to pen the love song, about his relationship with his wife, Pearl.
As previously reported, Moreland is set to release his eagerly anticipated fifth solo album, "LP5," on Feb. 7 via Old Omens/Thirty Tigers.
Produced by Matt Pence (Jason Isbell, The Breeders, Sarah Jaffe) at The Echo Lab, "LP5" marks the first time that Moreland has worked with an outside producer.
A longtime fan of Pence’s drumming, engineering and production, Moreland felt he would be the perfect person to collaborate with. Special guests on the album include Pence on drums, Bonnie Whitmore on bass/vocals and Moreland’s multi-talented bandmate and fellow Oklahoman John Calvin Abney on a plethora of instruments.
As previously reported, Moreland is planning a free in-store performance and signing Feb. 7 at Oklahoma City's Guestroom Records, 3701 N Western Ave.
To guarantee entry at the Feb. 7 event, fans should preorder "LP5" or purchase the album at Guestroom Records, according to the event announcement. Preoder online at stores.portmerch.com/johnmoreland.
