Fresh from the success of their fourth album ‘Venom & Faith’, which gained a Best Contemporary Blues Album Grammy nomination, Larkin Poe have released a new video for their song ‘Keep Digging’. The track comes from their new album ‘Self Made Man’, which is to be released 12 June 2020 through Tricki Woo Records.
The news of the nomination came during the writing process for the new record. Rebecca Lovell told MetalTalk “It was an interesting energy to have suddenly enter the mix. You know, you’re in the middle of creative self-discovery, sorting through scraps of paper for what’s going to become the next record, and all of a sudden there’s this unexpected shot of adrenaline in the vein. The Grammy nomination was definitely a boost in unlocking the energy of Self Made Man.”
‘She’s A Self Made Man’ is the track on the new album which provides the title for the LP and marks, in a playfully pointed gender twist, the sisters’ anthem to their hard fought freedom.
Rebecca continues: “Life is all about balance. Sometimes it’s sweet, sometimes it’s sour. With ‘She’s A Self Made Man’, I wanted to write a song about the up-and-down ride that Megan and I have been on for the past ten years of building Larkin Poe.
“It’s hard to know who you are and it can take time to figure out what your purpose is, but I feel thankful that in recent years, my own feelings have started to click and make sense. Knowing and accepting yourself: that is empowerment.”
Larkin Poe like to touch the hearts and souls of their fellow humans worldwide with their energetic mixture of blues and rock.
Rebecca tells us: “Connection is everything. Music is the thing that allows us all to express our creativity and our humanity.”
“This is, in a lot of ways, the first lyrically uplifting record we’ve made,” Megan says. “People can go through terrible things. People can weather immeasurable sorrow and hard times, and yet we can still come out on the other side, pull ourselves together, and thrive. This record reflects some of the joy and positivity that we ourselves feel and appreciate.”
