Americana legends Old 97′s return with their new album ‘Most Messed Up’ featuring guest appearances from Tommy Stinson (The Replacements) and Jon Rauhouse (Neko Case) on lap-steel.

The very first song SomeKindaWonderful recorded together, ‘Reverse’ premiered yesterday on Idolator and is now up on iTunes. Frontman Jordy Towers tells Idolator  “‘Reverse’ is a story song told in reverse. It’s a true story actually … Something about telling a story in reverse is almost more emotional and revealing to me and it just naturally came out in that form when I wrote it.”

The trio’s blend of harmonized vocals, violins, guitar, bass and propulsive drums provides stripped-down exciting rock with a punch, as heard on ‘Sober & Single’.
