Ex-Mott The Hoople man Ian Hunter has enjoyed a storied career. How many can claim to have had a David Bowie-produced album (All The Young Dudes) and have penned the theme to The Drew Carey Show? Of course, Bowie penned “All The Young Dudes.” And of course, it still kills.
Though it’s a long way to travel from “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” to the halls of indie rock, Jeff Tweedy is facilitating Ian’s trek by lending his voice to three tracks on the forthcoming Hunter solo release Shrunken Heads. This song’s a natural fit for Tweedy’s reedy harmony, which you’ll hear laced into the hook.
Shrunken Heads is out 5/15 on Yep Roc.
