Micah P. Hinson’s new album Presents The Holy Strangers is described by the artist as being a “modern folk opera”. Telling the story of a war time family, going from birth to love, to marriage and children, to war and betrayal, murder to suicide – spanning all of the strange and glorious places life can lead. We follow their story, we see their decisions, we see their faults and their beauty. We live with them, we die with them.
To be frank it sounds like classic MPH territory and we’re very much looking forward to hearing the record in its hour long entirety when it is released in September. Until then we have two tracks to share from it, the Johnny Cash-style country single Lover’s Lane and The Years Tire On.
