Stereogum gives you a stream and download of another new Lydia Loveless song from her upcoming album 'Somewhere Else,' out February 18th. The song is called "Really Wanna See You Again," and it's a bona fide ripper.

Sounds about right. For the entire album.

Yes, a very dark, bloody rainbow.
Pre-order 'Nothin But Blood'.

CMT Edge interviewed Hard Working Americans (feat. Todd Snider, Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, and Neal Casal) about their new album, which features a spot-on cover of The Bottle Rockets' classic "Welfare Music."

"Welfare Music" is one of many timeless American songs collected on the 2013 'Bottle Rockets/The Brooklyn Side' deluxe reissue.
