Dave Stewart - "Nashville Snow" (lyric video) (PopMatters Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

9 September 2013

The Eurythmics' Dave Stewart returns September 30th with his latest solo album, Lucky Numbers, the third record released by Stewart in the last three years.
 

This time around the “Ringmaster General” leaves behind the Nashville studio of producer John McBride and decamps his whole crew to a boat in the South Pacific, where the album was recorded over 12 dreamy days. “I wanted to do something a little different this time, so I invited the band to join me on an adventure to the South Pacific,” says Stewart.“Where we could record with nobody else around, floating around on the sea. It was like parachuting into Oz. We were fish out of water. We were out 12 days, but we were actually only sober enough to record for three or four.”

Today we have the pleasure of premiering the lyric video for new album track, “Nashville Snow”, a hazy tune infused with delicious Americana tinges and a super mellow vibe. Stewart surrounds himself with hugely talented collaborators on Lucky Numbers and this song is no exception with Karen Elson filling out the tune with her beguiling vocals.
