Sounding something like Stephen Stills’ seminal Super Session project, with a dash of CSNY, this exclusive advance stream of “Don’t Want Lies” finds Stills participating in a loose, bluesy date with Barry Goldberg and Kenny Wayne Shepherd as the Rides.
“Don’t Want Lies,” set to be released to radio later this week, is but one highlight of the forthcoming Can’t Get Enough, which features three other co-written originals, a few choice covers and a previously unrecorded 1960s-era gem from Stills.
Beginning with a chance jam during Super Bowl festivities, the Rides found an instant spark — as heard on originals including the groove-focused title track and “Word Game,” which began life as an acoustic demo from Buffalo Springfield and has now been reborn as a roaring full-band closing number. Elsewhere, there are scorching runs through “Honey Bee” (the Muddy Waters classic) and “Rockin’ in the Free World” (from Stills’ former CSNY and Springfield bandmate Neil Young).
Can’t Get Enough, produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads fame, is due August 27, 2013 via 429 Records.
