It’s taken a few months — okay, half a year — but Philadelphia rockers Free Energy have returned with another new track and (finally) a release date for Lovesign. The long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s Stuck on Nothing will hit streets January 15th on the band’s own imprint, Free People. To hold us over, they’ve unleashed a second single titled “Dance All Night”, which slows things down considerably from March’s first cut, “Electric Fever”.
There’s a healthy dose of Petty across this evening crooner. That’s not surprising in the slightest, though. Earlier this year, singer Paul Sprangers told us that “Petty is a huge influence on this record, too. He wrote some of the catchiest songs in the canon of American rock. I wonder why more people don’t try to emulate it or use it as a starting point, at the very least.” Download below for a lethal dose of straight up, timeless rock ‘n’ roll — preferably on the hood of a car, near a loved one, and/or overlooking something cool.
The band also issued a trailer for the album, which clocks in at 22 seconds, and is available below. Though, if you’re looking for a little more, and waiting anxiously to hear the album’s other tracks like ”Backscratcher”, “Hey Tonight”, and “Girls Want Rock”, then you might want to hit up our upcoming CoSigns: October Party at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly on October 20th. It just might be the night you’ve been dreaming about.
