Jenny Lewis Unveils A New Song ‘Heads Gonna Roll’ From Her Upcoming Album ‘On The Line’

Jenny Lewis

 

Jenny Lewis is wearing a sparkling pink suit while sitting on a white horse and she is singing the most Rilo Kiley song she has composed for a long time. ‘Heads Gonna Roll’, the lush ballad done in a doom romantic style, is the new single from her upcoming album ‘On The Line’, and the poignancy of the chorus brings back memories of her first band while her pretty and confident voice soars over strings and an all-star bands: Ringo Starr is on drums, Don Was on bass while Benmont Tench (of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers) is on keyboard.

‘Heads Gonna Roll’ she quietly sings while some drama unfolds in the lyrics ‘Baby, everybody’s gotta pay that toll/And maybe after all is said and done/We’ll all be skulls’,… It’s a perfect line for Valentine Day!

Jenny may be riding a horse in the still video, but she is talking about a trip ‘in a borrowed convertible red Porsche/With a narcoleptic poet from Duluth’, and the following line has to be my favorite one ‘And we disagreed about everything/From Elliott Smith to grenadine’

Besides the name dropping, the lyrics are a trip in themselves and the melody is sweeping the place with nostalgia, especially when Jenny pronounces this vulnerable ‘baby’.

I guess Jenny Lewis is right now walking on thin egg shells every time she gives an interview because the song was produced by Ryan Adams, who also produced her 2014 album ‘The Voyager’. As we all know, Adams got in big trouble yesterday after the New York Times published an article reporting that 7 women have made serious accusation of harassment, sexual and emotional abuse.

Jenny has not commented on the story,

I hunted for old interviews but the worst I have heard from her was a snippet during an interview during which she said that he was controlling during the recording process (he didn’t let her listen to the takes) but she was not even complaining and she mentioned being friendly with him. Plus why would she have reconnected with him if she has had a bad experience during the recording of her first album?

Jenny Lewis’ new album ‘On The Line’ is set to be released on March 22nd on Warner Bros, but you can pre-order it here.
