For their 14th album, they’ve taken a different direction. Calling in producer David Ferguson (Johnny Cash, U2) and Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and armed with a collection of songs that didn’t really fit their usual sound, the result is a blend of Laurel Canyon folk-rock, ’60s Countrypolitan and ’70s country soul.
Their impressive talents as accomplished musicians combined with their layered brotherly harmonies are still here in an easy-going country vibe. Listen out for the beautiful version of REM’s Everybody Hurts.
