Southern roots rocker Steve Earle debuted a brand-new song from his forthcoming album, take a listen to the bluesy ‘You’re the Best Lover That I Ever Had’ .Steve Earle has been recording his upcoming album, ‘Terraplane’ — which was released February 17th supported by his backing band, the Dukes, at the House of Blues in Nashville.

“Most of this was written on the road,” Earle said . “I went through a divorce and I needed the money, so I’ve been touring a lot, just working constantly and writing whenever I can.”
“Everything that happens to me will find its way into my lyrics, which can be an advantage as a writer and a disadvantage as a person,” he said of his songwriting process. “I don’t wanna hurt anybody’s feelings. I’m not trying to be mean. But I’m not gonna not write about what’s happening, so there’s a lot of sad stuff here. It was a good time to make a blues record.”

Earle and the Dukes have taken to recording the songs live after an hour or two of practicing, giving Earle a kind of laissez-faire attitude toward recording.

“Let’s just find a performance where all the weird s–t happens at the right place, and that’s our take,” he said.

Steve Earle and company seem to effortlessly find that sweet spot, which can be heard on the new track
