Song Premiere: Robbie Fulks - "Long I Ride"

Music  |  Audio

Chicago alt-country artist Robbie Fulks has released ten albums in his lengthy career and even dabbled in pop, covering artists like Michael Jackson. But Fulks isn’t done yet; his latest release, Gone Away Backward, is set for release this week, and the album is a welcome return to Fulks’ unplugged roots.

Each song plays out like a story, and the anecdotal tone of the songwriting is amplified by the way Fulks employs Appalachian-style vocalists on many of the tracks. Although Gone Away Backward isn’t set for release until Aug. 27, you can listen to “Long I Ride,” a single from the album, and download the mp3 in the player below.
