British rock legend Ian McLagan will release United States, his first new studio album in five years, June 17 via Yep Roc Records. The album, his first since being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of the Faces, alternates between lusty grooves and reflective musings, showcasing McLagan’s beguiling charm and timeless gift for crafting memorable hooks.
Yearning standout “Love Letter” leads into the smooth and moody take-charge song “Who Says It Ain’t Love,” while “Shalalala” draws from classic soul and “How Blue” rides a boogie-woogie shuffle. McLagan will play the NON-COMMvention in Philadelphia May 15 and NPR’s Cabinet of Wonders in NYC May 17. Check out the “slow-burning” album opener “All I Wanna Do” via The Wall Street Journal.Tags: ian mclagan, New Release, United States, Wall Street Journal
