Having recently shared the track “So Alive” from a new album due for release in Spring next year, today Jonathan Wilson premieres a video to new single “69 Corvette.” Of the track Wilson says: “‘69 corvette’ is a tune I wrote in a few of the hundred hotel rooms I was in the past few years, on the bigrocktour. I realised somewhere deep in Latvia that I was missing my home, my family, the woods in North Carolina, the whole process of growing up. I missed my family, the feeling, the preaching. This is my ode to them. The song was recorded live with the band at Sound Emporium in Nashville. It’s the first tune I recorded with my new pal Mark O Connor. Enjoy…”

Other performers on the bill include Irish folk-pop songstress Lisa Hannigan and The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn.
