Hollywood Blues-funk rockers Vintage Trouble will release their third album Heavy Hymnal on 23 June 2023 through Cooking Vinyl. With June performances headlining the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury, and also at Perranporth Bands In The Sands, the band tour through seven dates from 26 July 2023 in the UK.
Not The One, the first track from the album, is out now. “This tune is about someone being in a relationship that has them feeling taken advantage of, manipulated, and belittled,” lead singer Ty Taylor said. “When one loves hard, one gives in and compromises deeply to a fault.
“But there is a power that comes along with self-awareness and the realization that you have taken all that you can take. Enough is enough. No one will respect you more than you respect yourself. The change starts with you. With me in this case.”
“The hardest part about singing and playing this song is the harsh understanding of how far away from my fire I was allowing myself to be in order to satisfy someone else’s happiness. I remember when I was a kid, hearing grown folks around me that had no intention of dealing with the bullshit that was being thrown at them anymore saying, ‘I’m Not The One’.
“It always sounded so strong and liberating to me. We thought to allow the chorus and chords of the song to reside in the late 1950s but have the groove and verse melody swing like modern-day hips.”
Vintage Trouble have signed with London-based Cooking Vinyl in a worldwide service deal to release the latest chapter in their career with Heavy Hymnal. “It’s an absolute privilege to be working with one of the finest live acts around,” Rob Collins, Cooking Vinyl MD said, “and with their most ambitious record to date, Cooking Vinyl intends to push the band to a global audience.”
