American singer/songwriter Seasick Steve, aka Steven Gene, released his latest single ‘It’s A Long, Long Way…’ this week, taken from recent offering You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks, which debuted at No 6 in the UK album chart upon release.

‘It’s A Long, Long Way…’ is already a festival singalong favourite among revellers, and features former Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones on mandolin. The country-soaked anthem quietly gathers momentum with the aid of a choir, and will appeal to fans of Johnny Cash.

Seasick Steve is scheduled to perform at Reading and Leeds Festival at the end of this month. He was recently joined onstage at London’s iTunes Festival by Jack White and Alison Mosshart. Just the following day he performed ‘Back In The Doghouse’ with Foo Fighters at Milton Keynes Bowl.

‘It’s A Long, Long Way…’ is out now on PIAS.
