Randy Newman – “Sonny Boy”

Last fall, Randy Newman shared the satirical song “Putin” before the results of the US election, and it ended up being a prescient indication of what the country would be preoccupied with in the months to come. Back in March, he announced that it would be included on a new album, Dark Matter, his first since 2008’s Harps And Angels, but he hasn’t shared another track from the album (which comes out in a few weeks) until now. Today, Newman has released another song from it, “Sonny Boy,” which you can listen to below.

Tracklist:
01 “The Great Dealer”
02 “Brothers”
03 “Putin”
04 “Lost Without You”
05 “Sonny Boy”
06 “It’s A Jungle Out There (V2)”
07 “She Chose Me”
08 “On The Beach”
09 “Wandering Boy”

Dark Matter is out digitally on 8/4 and on vinyl on 8/18 via Nonesuch.
