In 2022, what the world truly needs is new music from Jon Spencer. We're finally in luck, since after a long four year wait we finally have some! "Junk Man" is the latest from Jon Spencer & the HITmakers. If you've been a fan of Spencer for any length of time or any of his musical projects, this is for you. It has plenty of roots in blues based rock and roll. It's a little softer than the Blues Explosion, but heavier and less roots based than Heavy Trash. Plus, the inclusion of a keyboard gives this a vintage garage rock feel. It's the kind of song you'd hear on a Nuggets compilation, which is perfectly suited to Jon Spencer and his whole vibe.
You can watch the video for "Junk Man" below. Spencer Gets It Lit is due out on April 1 via Shove Records, and can be pre-ordered on Bandcamp.

Hopefully they find some room for coming up to New England in their somewhere.
