Lydia Loveless is BACK! PopMatters has the scoop on her brand new five-song EP 'Boy Crazy' coming out November 5th on Bloodshot! The article also features a premiere of the title track. The EP is a collection of sun-washed, rebel-powered pop songs presenting a conversation about judgment and loss of innocence, as one transitions from good old American naivete to you-should-know-better "wisdom."
