Return With New Album and Single
A Little More Time With Reigning Sound
out 21st May on Merge Records
Reigning Sound’s “A Little More Time” marks the first new music from the group in nearly seven years! As expected, it’s another welcome dose of garage rock and Memphis soul from Reigning Sound frontman Greg Cartwright.
The track serves double duty as the lead single from the band’s forthcoming full-length A Little More Time with Reigning Sound, due May 21st on Merge Records, as well as the A-side of “A Little More Time” b/w “Lonely Ghost,” a 7-inch single available in record shops this Friday.
Exclusive to the UK, Rough Trade will also have 300 copies of the album on pink & purple swirl vinyl – https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/reigning-sound/a-little-more-time-with-reigning-sound
The new single will just lift you and take you on the journey that it plays out. Warm, melodic and meaningful. A powerful composition that already alludes to this masterpiece creation. A welcomed return, showcasing the power of the sound.
It’s been over 15 years since Cartwright uprooted to Asheville, but this new Memphis-made record shows the songwriter in top form and wholly inspired by his birthplace. And it’s not only the terrain that’s familiar: For this new LP, Cartwright also reunited with Reigning Sound’s original “Memphis lineup” of Jeremy Scott (bass), Greg Roberson (drums), and Alex Greene (keyboards), all of whom played on the band’s earliest recordings.
The new songs explore fresh lyrical and musical territories but at times also tastefully echo back to Reigning Sound’s Break Up, Break Down (2001) and Time Bomb High School (2002). And that’s not by chance—it’s just what happens when these musicians get in the same room. Their sonic chemistry hasn’t faded a bit.
