New Digital Single From Kelly Hogan Now Available

Anti- Records is thrilled to announce the release the first digital single from the new Kelly Hogan solo album I Like To Keep Myself In Pain. The song is a contemplative and soulful track called "We Can't Have Nice Things" written for Hogan by author Jack Pendarvis and songwriter Andrew Bird. The track is available via href="http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=516140353">iTunes> .

As Hogan explains, "My dear friend Jack Pendarvis sent these lyrics. He thought it would turn out like this George Jones she-left-me type of song. But I had asked Andrew Bird, who I have worked with a long time, to write me a song. He asked if I had any lyrics he could write with so I sent him Jack's. He sent them back with this amazing music and it turned into this really deep soul-searching, psychological song."

On I Like To Keep Myself In Pain, her new album that arrives in stores June 5th, Hogan curates an ambitious and moving labor of love, mining the perfect intersection between classic pop, country and soul. She uses her sublime voice to interpret compositions penned for her by musical luminaries including M. Ward, Vic Chesnutt, Magnetic Fields, the Mekons' Jon Langford, the Handsome Family, Bird, Freakwater's Catherine Irwin, John Wesley Harding, Robbie Fulks, Gabriel Roth and Robyn Hitchcock.

Hogan is backed on the album by an all-star band consisting of R&B legends Booker T. Jones and James Gadson (Bill Withers, Beck) as well as talented young lions Gabe Roth (of Daptone Records, the Dap-Kings) and Scott Ligon (NRBQ).
