Steve Earle & The Dukes (And Duchesses) - "Invisible" (video)

by PopMatters Staff

27 February 2013

The first single from Steve Earle's superb new album, 'The Low Highway', released yesterday.
 

The Low Highway is Steve Earle‘s best album since 2004’s The Revolution Starts Now. Earle describes it as his “road album”: “I’ve been on every interstate highway in the lower 48 states by now and I never get tired of the view. I’ve seen a pretty good chunk of the world and my well-worn passport is one of my most prized possessions, but for me, there’s still nothing like the first night of a North American tour; everybody, band and crew, crowded up in the front lounge, eating Nashville hot chicken and Betty Herbert’s homemade pimento cheese, swapping the same tired old war stories half shouted over the rattle and hum of the highway. And I’m always the last one to holler good night to Charlie Quick, the driver, and climb in my bunk because to me it feels like Christmas Eve long ago when I still believed in Santa Claus. God I love this.”


The Low Highway releases 16 April via New West Records.
