Released for free digital download on September 28th (the first Tuesday [music releasin' day] of autumn!), "AMERICAN SUN EP" is the first multi-song offering from Sam Cooper & the Sleepwalkers since May's "RED HORSES." The EP is comprised of: 2 singles SC&S released during the course of the summer; 2 tunes from Sam's (spottily available) back catalogue, lovingly re-imagined; 2 brand new compositions; and a cover of one of the most beautiful songs ever written, Lyle Lovett's "North Dakota."
"AMERICAN SUN EP" is the aural evidence of Sam dissecting themes that, if not completely new to his music, are presented here with a kind of clarity and honesty that hasn't been seen quite like this so far in his recorded output: summer love, happiness(?!), sex, uncertainty, fear, death, bittersweetness, and love again. Always love. So mourn the death of the summer, or celebrate the start of autumn--whichever suits you better--with Sam Cooper & the Sleepwalkers. Enjoy.
