Pegi Young And The Survivors Lonely In A Crowded Room on 180g LP + Download Card
Pegi Young & The Survivor’s fourth album, Lonely In A Crowded Room, will be released in October 2014 on New West Records. The album follows 2011’s Bracing For Impact, and builds off what Rolling Stone described as “an appealingly scruffy mix of low-fi Western swing, wry honky-tonk and dusky blues shuffles,” while expanding into jazzy lounge, soulful R&B and classic country.
The record was produced by Niko Bolas (Warren Zevon, The Mavericks, Melissa Etheridge, Neil Young) and recorded at Redwood Digital Studios on Broken Arrow Ranch, MilkBoy the Studio in Philadelphia and at Capitol Records in Hollywood. Lead track, “Lonely Women Make Good Lovers,” penned by legendary songwriter and musician Spooner Oldham, and featuring him on keyboards, was originally recorded in 1972 by Bob Luman and later became a No. 4 hit (Billboard Hot Country Single) in 1984 for Steve Wariner.
In addition to seven new originals, including her comical take on the pharmaceutical industry in the jazzy “Better Livin’ Through Chemicals” and the charged rocker “Feels Just Like A Memory,” Pegi also offers up a heart-wrenching take on the 1963 soul classic, “Ruler of My Heart,” written by producer Allen Toussaint under the pseudonym of Naomi Neville and made famous by Irma Thomas.
Pegi's band, The Survivors includes an all-star line-up of incredible musicians: Spooner Oldham on keyboards, Kelvin Holly on guitar, Rick Rosas on bass and Phil Jones on drums and percussion.
