Album News: Patterson Hood – Heat Lightning Rumbles In The Distance

Drive-By Truckers frontman Patterson Hood will be releasing his third solo album, Heat Lightning Rumbles In The Distance, on September 11th, and has made one of the tracks available as an .mp3 download for the price of an email address. The song is called ‘Come Back Little Star’, with Patterson saying that he “co-wrote this song with my dear friend Kelly Hogan, who also came in to sing it with me. She began the lyrics as a song for our late dear friend Vic Chesnutt and I re-wrote it with the intention of her recording it for her album. She ended up letting me put it on my album and it’s a highlight to me.”

Hood co-produced the album with long time Drive-By Truckers’ collaborator David Barbe, who also plays bass on the album. All of his DBT band mates make appearances on the record (Mike Cooley, Jay Gonzalez, Brad Morgan and John Neff) as does Scott Danbom and Will Johnson from Centro-matic and Kelly Hogan. Hood’s father, famed Muscle Shoals bassist, David Hood also plays on the record.
