Wielding his Morris Minor guitar fashioned out of two hubcaps and garden hoe, Seasick Steve will release his second full length studio album for Third Man Records–titled (what else?) Hubcap Music–on October 8.
Seasick Steve is indisputably a living legend, and is recognized as such the world over–particularly in the UK where he has received four gold and one platinum records, sold out the likes of the Royal Albert Hall and and the Manchester and Hammersmith Apollo theaters, appeared on national TV, been nominated for multiple Brit Awards, played the Glastonbury and V Festivals, and shared the stage with the likes of John Paul Jones and Dave Grohl. In 2011, Steve released You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks, his first full length album for Third Man Records.
Hubcap Music kicks off with “Down On The Farm,” which Steve debuted live at last year’s Pinkpop Festival in the Netherlands and is one of several tracks on the record to feature John Paul Jones on bass. Jones also contributes mandolin, Hammond organ and more to the record, while other Hubcap players include Jack White on “The Way I Do” Luther Dickinson on “Home,” and Dan Magnusson holding down the beat as he does for Steve’s live shows.
