Nashville-based indie folk artist Stone Jack Jones announces his new album Black Snake, sharing lead single “Mary Mary.” Yesterday, Glide Magazine premiered the track and announced the upcoming release, calling it, “a gritty and emotive nugget that captures Jones at his most poignant.
There is a breezy and cinematic aura to the track that mixes Blood on the Tracks Bob Dylan production with Jones’ well-seasoned Nashville voice.” Black Snake LP is out September 13 via yk Records.
Stone Jack Jones’s latest album is three songs of death, two of madness, two of love and the song of a journey. Recorded with Roger Moutenot (Bill Frisell, Joseph Arthur, Yo La Tengo, KORT) at Haptown, his tucked away studio in Nashville, TN, Black Snake takes a dark folk sound and spins it into a uniquely psychedelic sonic tale.
Collaborations from a host of Nashville musicians flesh out the compositions into the dark tomes. Kyle Hamlett (lylas), Rodrigo Avendano (Coupler, Sun Seeker, Soccer Mommy), Patrick Damphier, Luke Schneider (Margo Price, William Tyler), Katie Banyay (Idle Bloom), Stewart Bronaugh (Lionlimb), Gyasi, Scott Martin and Madeleine Besson are among the contributors.
The album’s cover art depicts original artwork from Stone Jack Jones’s son, Logan Jones, and the album was mastered by Jim DeMain at Yes Master.
