After releasing its last album on Fat Possum, San Francisco’s Sonny And The Sunsets has moved over to Polyvinyl for its upcoming release, Longtime Companion, due out June 26.
Longtime Companion will be a country record about Sonny Smith’s breakup with his wife of 10 years. The album marks a change for Smith musically as he combined members of his Sunsets with members of his country band, the Fuckaroos.
Get a feel for the beer-stained heartbreak on Longtime Companion by listening to the first single off the album, “Pretend You Love Me,” below.
