I’ll take one ticket to Booty City, please

I can’t even tell you how excited I am for the new Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears album Scandalous to drop tomorrow. After sharing a tune from their debut album with my friend Paul, he nicely summed up their sound as “Screaming Jay Hawkins meets Stax records.” They pack more funk, soul, and blues into one single than most bands squeeze into a whole album. Dig on their new single, “Booty City”:

Pre-order the deluxe version of Scandalous on iTunes and you’ll get 4 bonus tracks, including what I really really really hope is a cover of the Stones’ the Robert Johnson classic “Stop Breakin’ Down.”

Update (3/15): it is a cover of Johnson’s song, and it’s awesome!
