Steve Earle To Release New Single

Posted by Kersty Boll on 04/12/2011

Steve Earle will release a limited edition 7 inch single to celebrate Record Store Day on April 16.
The A-Side, which is Earle's version of the Hank Williams song, is the title of both Earle's new studio album and debut novel, "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive." The song was the last single released during Hank Williams' lifetime in December of 1952.
The B-Side is Earle's celebrated original "This City," which has garnered both Emmy and Grammy Award nominations as it was written for HBO's Original Series "Treme" (in which Earle appears as a cast member).
"This City" also closes Earle's T Bone Burnett-produced new album released by New West Records on April 26. The translucent, red-with-a-black-swirl vinyl is one of 2,600 hand-numbered editions. The cover of "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive" will be available digitally as a bonus track and is exclusive in physical form to this 7 inch release. 
As a change of pace, Steve Earl will be touring with his electric live band, The Dukes (and Duchesses) featuring Allison Moorer, as opposed to traveling solo as he has done in years past. The tour begins June 9th in Seattle, WA.
Earle will also be resurrecting his role of Harley during HBO's second season of "Treme," which will premiere April 24. 
Earle is offering fans a free download bundle that includes an MP3 of the new song "Waitin' On The Sky" and a PDF of the first chapter from the novel. The download is available to all who are currently a "fan" of Steve Earle or becomes a "fan" of his Facebook page available at
