Prepare to blast off into Rolling Stones-fueled territories with Let’s Just Be, Joseph Arthur and the Lonely Astronauts’ first of two albums slated to drop in 2007. In fact, Arthur and crew aped the Stones’ recording method on the new album, tracking “all of the new songs straight to tape using only 16 tracks with no reverb, sort of back to the basics,” Arthur commented in a statement. The rogue frontman sounds particularly inspired on “Diamond Ring,” the album’s lead track, a delightfully rollicking gem in the rough. Let’s Just Be will launch April 17.
