Cracker to visit the Land of Milk and Honey in May
Since the early '90s, Cracker has been blissfully flying just under the radar, steadily releasing albums. Following up 2006's Greenland, the band will release its seventh album, Sunrise in the Land of Milk and Honey, out May 5 on 429 Records.
Punk legend John Doe (X), Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers) and Adam Duritz (Counting Crows) lend their talents to three of the tracks, while the album as a whole is produced by former Sugar member David Barbe.
Below, you can check out the video for album opener, "Yalla Yalla (Let's Go)," a tribute of sorts to U.S. service men and women fighting in the Middle East. On the YouTube page for the song, Lowery explains that the track itself doesn't take a position on the war in Iraq, but is rather a look into the separate culture and lingo the current round of soldiers have amongst themselves. (Apparently, soldiers say "yalla yalla" to each other, Arabic for "hurry up" or "let's go.")
