Multi-instrumentalist Olivia Jean announces the release of Merry Widow, 7" vinyl for album track "Merry Widow" and album B-Side cover "You Really Got Me," through Third Man Records, in support of her critically acclaimed debut solo record, Bathtub Love Killings. Fans can pre-order the special 7" through Third Man Records now. "You Really Got Me" is also available digitally through iTunes. Jean's "You Really Got Me" cover was recently hand selected as the featured song in the newly released YSL Mascara commercial, alongside model Cara Delevingne.
"As a songwriter, she has unerring ear for crafting memorable hooks and deftly blurring genre lines, making her songs sound instantly familiar...but even as a smitten fan, I wasn't quite prepared for the joys of Bathtub Love Killings." - WBEZ
"In the final estimation, Bathtub Love Killings is Olivia Jean's show. She holds down acoustic and electric guitar duties as well as all the keyboards and vocals, putting her twinned signature stamp of seductress kitten/wronged lover on pretty much every number." - Blurt
"Her debut LP is dashed with bluesy licks, spooky organs, and girl-group harmonies." - ELLE
"Dark gritty vocals, fuzz guitars and mix of freak folk '60s psychedelia." - Hollywood Reporter
Bathtub Love Killings is the debut solo LP from Olivia Jean, the multi-instrumentalist who cut her teeth in the Third Man stable backing folks as varied as Karen Elson, Wanda Jackson and Jack White in addition to fronting the much-loved Black Belles. Jean has accrued a lifetime of experience in a few short years, from highlight performances on The Colbert Report, Conan, Late Show With David Letterman and The Grand Old Opry stage to having one of her songs used as the theme for the television series Elvira's Movie Macabre. Produced by Jack White, Bathtub Love Killings showcases Jean as a songwriting force to be reckoned with. Playing damn near every instrument she could get her hands on, the result is a well-rounded, catchy record that's chock-a-block full of earworm moments. Huffington Post named Olivia Jean one of their "Fab Fourteeners of 2014: Peak Musical Performers of the Year." Additionally, Jean performed "Merry Widow" on Conan last November.

Today is a special day, for it marks the official release of 2 records that we are particularly proud to put out into the world. Danny Kroha, one of Detroit's many kings of the garage, has reinvented himself yet again, taking an unapologetic and refreshingly raw stab at gospel and folk, and solidifying yet another place in the canon of American music with Angels Watching Over Me. All hail Kroha! Learn more about the record and what Danny has to say about it, and pick up your copy, on CD or vinyl here, or if you're an MP3 person, head on over to iTunes to get your fix.
Benjamin Booker performed in our Blue Room last Fall, and the set was memorable, if not only for Benjamin's outfit, but also because it was one of the more transcendent shows we've seen here from a young band. Clearly, every chord and chorus had been committed to muscle memory after a year of hard living on the road, and the band playing wasn't playing with their fingertips or their guitar picks, but with their guts and their stories. It was magic. You can own it by clicking here.
Please note: Unfortunately, though we were very hopeful to have Benjamin Booker Black & Blue exclusive records for those that ordered them at the show, we are experiencing a slight delay in manufacturing. We will let you know the moment we have them in house, and we appreciate your patience!
With so many folks coming into Nashville from out of town to check out Jack White's show with Loretta Lynn and William Tyler at Bridgestone Arena this Wednesday, we figured it would be fun to sell a few exclusive merch items from Third Man Records' Nashville storefront.
Stop in to get your hands on this gorgeous, Rob Jones-designed baseball card print.
While you're at it, pick up this one-time-only enamel lapel pin... just the first of many more to come. If you don't get this one, how will you possibly COLLECT THEM ALL?!
We also have a brand new "Would You Fight For My Love?" lyric sticker, which will eventually be available online, but for now, we're giving store patrons first shot at them.
See you all down the hall and in the stands to watch the band on Wednesday night! Speaking of which, there ARE a handful of tickets left for this show, so if you think you're too late, think again!
