You may know The Promise for being 80s Manchester band, When In Rome’s lone US hit single (though it didn’t dent the top 40 in the UK).

On Sturgill Simpson’s excellent new album, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music, the Kentucky born singer takes the song apart and puts it back together in a distinctly non-New Wave type way, making you believe that this is the way it was always meant to be.

Watch the mesmerising new video that accompanies it, and check out his UK tour dates below.

God, drugs and lizard aliens: rising Country star, Sturgill Simpson’s excellent new video for recent single Turtles All The Way Down has all these and more…

“Every time I take a look inside that old and fabled book/I’m blinded and reminded of the pain caused by some old man in the sky/Marijuana, LSD, psilocybin, DMT, they all changed the way I see/But love’s the only thing that’s ever saved my life.”

Pre-order his new album from Loose Music here.
