Nick Lowe will release Love Starvation / Trombone, his latest collaboration with Los Straitjackets, on 17th May through Yep Roc Records.

Recorded in Woodstock, New York over a short break from touring, the collection features three new Lowe originals and a cover of the obscure Phil Spector-produced gem Raincoat In The River. The collection is Lowe’s second consecutive release with Los Straitjackets after 2018’s Tokyo Bay / Crying Inside.

Love Starvation / Trombone will be released via all digital platforms and as a 12″ featuring unique sequencing on each side and exclusive artwork for each.

Talking about Love Starvation Lowe says, “It has a kind of Ritchie Valens feel to it that I thought might suit Los Straitjackets. It’s funny, that song could’ve been a Rockpile song. But in a way, I don’t think I was good enough to write a song like that back then. It sounds like old stuff, but I’m just better at doing it now.”

The track list for Love Starvation / Trombone is:

1. Love Starvation
2. Blue On Blue
3. Trombone
4. Raincoat In The River

The latest incarnation of Nick Lowe’s Quality Rock & Roll Revue Starring Los Straitjackets will tour the UK this summer.
