Mudcrutch – “Trailer”

Tom Petty reformed Mudcrutch eight years ago and dropped the band’s self-titled debut after he performed during the Super Bowl Halftime show. Since then, the folk rockers have been mum, but they’ve broken that silence today with “Trailer” and the announcement of Mudcrutch 2. The lead single is a quintessential Tom Petty song full of yearning and nostalgia over the twangiest of guitars, soulful harmonica, and subdued drums. Petty sings, “I coulda had the Army/ I coulda had the Navy/ But no I had to go for a mobile home/ I gave it all to you baby.” But Petty pines over the wouldas, couldas, and shouldas like none other, and you can feel his palpable regret from giving everything he had to make love work. Just when it feels his emotions are at their rawest, the energy ramps up before a cooling close. It’s a bit depressing, but man does it hit that spot if you need to go there. Listen.
