Day-After* Tuesday Tune: “What the Hell is Goin’ On” By The Paul Thorn Band + A Giveaway

May 9, 2012

*Editor’s note: Sorry, this is a day late. We had a tech glitch.

The Day-After Tuesday Tune is the title track off The Paul Thorn Band‘s new album, What the Hell is Goin’ On?, which came out today.

Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity, and character – as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts of genius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and raised among the same spirits (and some of the people) who nurtured a young Elvis generations before, Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran, signed with and been dropped by a major label, opened for Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, and John Prine among many other headliners, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time.

The Paul Thorn Band‘s new collection album, entitled What The Hell Is Goin’ On? (due out May 8th, 2012) finds Thorn putting his own gritty rock stamp on some of his favorite songs. There are some names familiar to Americana fans (Buddy Miller, Ray Wylie Hubbard), some lesser-known (Foy Vance, Wild Bill Emerson) and some surprises.
