It seems a bit nuts to write about a single that isn’t coming out until March 4. But it’s hard to resist writing about the stunning and criminally talented twang Tennesee artist Valerie June wherever possible.
Valerie has been working the Brit circuit lately — she recently appeared on Later…With Jools Holland, singing her haunting folk single, “Workin’ Woman Blues,” and she’s teaming up with UK up-and-comer Jake Bugg for a couple of shows in London in February.
Her upcoming single “You Can’t Be Told” boasts some pretty fancy songwriting collaborators, including Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and producer Kevin Augunas of Florence + The Machine fame. We shall hold our breath until March 4. Her new album, Pushin’ Against A Stone, comes out in spring 2013 on the Sunday Best label.
