After a steady flow of new music over the summer, LANY's new album mama's boy has finally arrived in full.
Out today via Interscope Records, it's the perfect antidote to this strange and chaotic Friday. The newly released LP includes the trio's previously released tracks "cowboy in LA," "you!," "if this is the last time" and "good guys."
As we previously mentioned, after wrapping their last tour in support of 2018's Malibu Nights, Klein temporarily relocated to a studio in the country outside Nashville alongside bandmates Jake Goss and Les Priest. During that time, Klein says he put into words the cognitive dissonance between his adopted L.A. persona and his Oklahoma heritage.
"Someone asked me where I was from and somewhere, out of my spirit, I just said, 'Man, I’m from Oklahoma!'" he says. "It was a weird sense of pride, to be from the middle of nowhere."
That realization inspired a lot of the upcoming record, which is a tribute to the heartland and home, with hues of Americana, with songwriting contributions from Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay, Kacey Musgraves collaborator Shane McAnally, Adele cowriter Dan Wilson and songwriters Sasha Sloan and King Henry.
