Jenny Lewis has shared the second single from her forthcoming solo album, On The Line, scheduled to arrive on March 22nd via Warner Bros. Records. The new song, “Heads Gonna Roll”, follows the previously-shared “Red Bull & Hennessy” and features some musical contributions courtesy of former Beatle Ringo Starr on drums, Wolf Bros member Don Was on bass, former Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench on organ, and The Section Quartet providing a warm layer of strings onto the recording. Lewis also handles the piano duties for her latest single.
The warm and nostalgic soft-rock track features Lewis turning what sounds at its core like a simple piano ballad into a five-minute anthem worthy of any fireside sing-a-long. The lyrics look on a very close friendship (and maybe even more), as Lewis sings, “Took a little trip up north in a borrowed convertible red Porsche/With a narcoleptic poet from Duluth we disagreed about everything from Elliott Smith to grenadine.”
The song confidently charges forward as Lewis provides the listener with an easy-to-remember repeating chorus line leading up to the uplifting organ solo courtesy of Tench starting at the song’s 2:42-minute mark. Fans can check out the audio-only video below to listen to “Heads Gonna Roll” in full.
