The Woodsman’s Babe, the moniker for solo act Joe Lengson, has released the first full song from the band’s upcoming sophomore release, Babeland. (Preorders are now available via iTunes.) The track, “Love Story,” aims to showcase the pop sensibilities of Lengson as a songwriter, serving as the perfect introduction to the impending release. Lengson, previously the bassist from Mychildren Mybride, enlisted Haste the Day vocalist Stephen Keech to produce the album.

The band will be on tour to support the release, beginning in mid-April. To get a sneak peek at the album, HM released a teaser for the work earlier last month.

PR in the Time of Pandemic

No one knows artists better than Amy Sciarretto, industry veteran and President of Atom Splitter PR. So when the world hit pause and artists had to call an audible, there is no one better to talk to about how those bands are pivoting in a new reality. Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used."

HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
