Lydia Loveless - "Longer"

Photo by Ken Sears
If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you'll know that a new song from Lydia Loveless will be something we explode over. Today, we can hear a new song from her forthcoming album. "Longer" is different. It's probably the most melodic and polished song we've heard from Lydia Loveless in quite some time, but it's also pretty raw. It combines her trademark alt-country drawl with the chugging indie punk that comes right out for their live show and then you add a little bit of Lydia's more pop fandom with someone like Kesha. Taken from the Lydia Loveless Facebook post about the track, Lydia has this to say about it: "I am more proud of this than I have ever been of anything. It's been a long wait and a nutty time in life but it's all about to be new again and I'm just so happy I made this record with my favorite people and I can't wait to share it, dammit."

Stereogum has the exclusive stream of "Longer," so you'll have to go there to check it out. Real, the new album from Lydia Loveless, will be out 8/19 on Bloodshot Records. You can pre-order it through them here. For more information on Lydia Loveless (including dates for the yet to be announced tour!) check out their website.
