Song Premiere: Cory Branan - "Bad Man"

April 25, 2012  |  2:00pm

For his third full-length album and Bloodshot Records debut, singer/songwriter Cory Branan seems to channel his inner Bruce Springsteen and Tom Waits. On the lead single, “Bad Man,” his gravelly voice helps drive a dark narrative of love, or at least something like it.

Mutt, set for a May 22 release, is Branan’s follow-up to 2002’s The Hell You Say and 2006’s 12 Songs. After recording the album at San Francisco’s Closer Studios and working with engineer/mixer Tim Mooney (American Music Club’s drummer), Branan produced the album himself. Guests on the record include Ralph Carney, Tom Waits’ horn player, as well as Luther Dickinson.

Branan is set to tour Europe and North America this spring and summer in support of Mutt. Check out his schedule and take a listen to the exclusive premiere of “Bad Man” below.
