LISTEN: Luke Winslow-King, ‘Heartsick Blues’

Sep 13, 2016

LISTEN: Luke Winslow-King, 'Heartsick Blues'

Artist: Luke Winslow-King
Hometown: New Orleans, LA
Song: “Heartsick Blues”
Album: I’m Glad Trouble Don’t Last Always
Release Date: September 30
Label: Bloodshot Records

In Their Words: “'Heartsick Blues' is a song about surviving heart break. It’s about realizing something is wrong when your love starts listening to a different kind of music. It's about cheating on the dance floor at a country two-step honky-tonk night with a band called the Wasted Lives.

I included titles of cliché Hank Williams and Tammy Wynette songs in the second verse: 'She's singing "Please Release Me" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." It's thinking about her "Cold, Cold Heart" that makes we want to die.'" — Luke Winslow-King
