This Is the Life, the debut album by local psych-pop outfit Blue Blood, has been a long time in the making. After several delays, the record is finally set to hit stores tomorrow, Tuesday, Apr. 28 via Atlanta label This Is American Music.
For a taste of what to expect from This Is the Life, check out an exclusive stream of one of the album’s standout tracks, the airy, anthemic “Money to Lose”:
Says Blue Blood frontman Hunter Morris:
As anybody who has played in bands for a while knows, the promises and predictions made by publicists and record labels are mostly just hot air. “Money To Lose” is a playful, tongue-in-cheek reference to all of the success that is “certain” to come with the release of this album. It’s arena-rock by a dive bar band.
Blue Blood plays the 40 Watt Club this Thursday, Apr. 30. Check this week’s print edition for a feature story on the band.
