Third Man Records is proud to present the latest single by our absolute favorite producer/ singer / rock n roller New Zealander by way of the UK, Willy Moon. Willy is 21 years old, writes, records and (mostly)produces everything on his own and keeps things short. Nothing grazes the three minute mark. He doesn't just blend different sounds, he smashes them together. It's as if rock n' roll was deep-frozen in 1965, and abruptly reanimated 45 years later by a laptop hip hop producer. Willy loves the physical energy of Cab Calloway, the brevity of The Ramones, and the style of film noir.
On August 20th, (and available for pre-order now) Third Man Records releases the 7" single and digital download of 'Railroad Track' b/w 'Bang Bang'. Both songs ring out as Big Bang size collisions of R&B (new and old), Gospel, and Doo Wop suavicity making this single one of the most exciting things we've heard this year.
Check out the Michael Carter directed video filmed on location in Nashville TN for 'Railroad Track' below and then pre-order the 7" here.
