Their sophomore album History From Below was released in 2010, and their Waits Room EP followed later that year— and while we’ve been patiently waiting all of 2011, Delta Spirit’s highly anticipated self-titled album will be out March 13 with a tour following.
Do we like Delta Spirit? Should we even ask that question? The grandpa in a video posted by the band recently was asked. And Grandpa confirmed, he does.
He also makes sure we know this is a band you can get off to while standing in a field sipping your canned beer.
Their new song “California,” available on iTunes Jan. 31, is the tune featured in the video.
The snippet lyrics, ”I want you to move to California for yourself/I want you to go out there and find somebody else/I want him to treat you like I know he should/I want you to find somebody new for yourself” give us a pretty clear idea that this album is going to be worth our ears.
