The US blues-rock creator Justin Long in the guise of Lord Willing will be releasing the LP Are You Happy? on the 31st of May.
From the forthcoming album – Loneliness Is The Hardest Drug, which was itself released as a stand alone single earlier this month, stakes a decent marker for the LP.
A just over three minutes track that is fused with R&B, Blues and thumping rock, which finds the listener stamping in time with the bulging drum kit that slices through the speakers. A well conceived piece of music which lifts even the dourest mood to a sense of well-being and rather than downing whisky to numb despondency the audience raises a glass in cheerful disposition.
The fact that Justin is an experienced musician, albeit that Lord Willing is a new project, is evidenced in the self-assured songwriting and delivery.
Word arrives of a follow-up single coming out on the 17th of March – Green Doesn’t Look Good On You which will provide a further signpost as to what to expect from Are You Happy? in May.
Loneliness Is the Hardest Drug – Single – Lord Willing is available on iTunes.*
