Marcus King released a new single, “Lie Lie Lie,” on Thursday. It follows “Rescue Me” as the latest track from his upcoming album Young Blood and also features a live video shot at Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound Studio.
“She’s a wild one / Never had a mild tongue / Gypsy child yeah / She always gets the job done” King croons right off the bat, setting the scene for a smokeshow of a song. The guitar riffs are thoroughly classic, calling to mind Led Zeppelin’s “Heartbreaker.” High octane drumming rounds out the sound.
“Lie Lie Lie” tells a familiar and relatable tale of being seduced and betrayed by a ruthless lover. “Don’t you know what I mean?” King cries out in his smoldering voice. The track is satisfying blues rock from start to finish.
Watch King perform “Lie Lie Lie” live below and stay tuned for Young Blood to drop on August 26.
