Culled from superb new album due later this month.

We think it’s great enough that we named its creator one of the Blurt Fall 2015 Heroes: it would be Greatest Hits by “trash poet songwriter” John Wesley Coleman III, due Oct. 23 on Super Secret. The record’s a piercing look at where Coleman, late of Austin psych outfit the Golden Boys, finds himself in 2015. And we are damn proud to be able to unveil a key track from the record, “Falling Out of Love.” Check it out:
Sonically, the songwriter takes inspiration from the Southern swagger of Dwight Yoakam and George Jones, the classic rock of Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street, the punk rock turbulence of Iggy and the Stooges and The Ramones. Coleman comments on the track itself, saying, “’Falling Out Of Love,’ written by my buddy Wil Cope, is a perfect example of first love melancholy in a style of Rolling Stones or Dwight Yoakam… I heard it live and wanted a chance to sing someone’s lyrics and to show the listener how I would perform it like Elvis, Keith Whitley or GG Allin doing ‘Carmelita’ by Warren Zevon, etc. That’s the beauty of sharing songs! Thanks, Wil!”
