“The Lord’s Favorite”

“When I think about previous Iceage records,” singer Elias Bender Rønnenfelt says in the next issue of self-titled (available here next month), “I don’t feel that connected to them. One is a picture of me as an 18-year old, and people can tap into that if they want, but I’m not interested in me as an 18-year old anymore. I’m somewhere else.”

Case in point: “The Lord’s Favorite,” a taste of the band’s next album that was shared via a borderline rockabilly video this morning. Check it out in the player above, and look for the band on tour with Helm this fall…
