Drive-By Truckers have just announced English Oceans, their tenth studio album. It's scheduled to drop on March 4th, and today the band has shared album track "Pauline Hawkins."
True to the Truckers' "Southern Rock Opera" origins, this track's a real barnstormer that clocks in over 6:30. They've always known how to pair an epic scope with a Southern rock canvas, and "Pauline Hawkins" is no exception. There are guitar solos, a piano interlude and plenty of good old gothic drama.
