On September 18, Lucero will release their new record ‘All A Man Should Do‘ via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings. Following the release of 2012′s ‘Women and Work,’ Lucero’s new album contains some of the most resonant lyrics Ben Nichols has ever written. They read like chapters from his life: the duality of relationships, getting older, finding where you want to be in this world and more.
Working with producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Flogging Molly) for a third time at Memphis‘s Ardent Studios, the band felt comfortable enough to take some chances with a palette of new tones that sound understated yet powerful, bringing life to the stories behind the lyrics without overshadowing them. And for the first time they put a cover song on a record, with a full band version of Big Star‘s ‘I Fell in Love with a Girl.’ The track features Jody Stephens from Big Star singing back-up vocals, making it that much more special.
