Following his previously unheard remix release, Shooter Jennings just unveiled another new track “Leave Those Memories Alone.”
“Leave Those Memories Alone” is Jennings cooking in his country roots, warning of the love powerful women can give: “Its time for you to go out and make some new memories of your own / You can dig up every bone.” The track resides in a completely different world than his newly retouched, electronic remix of his 2016 Countach (For Giorgio) highlight, “From Here To Eternity,” the “From Here To Eternity (Goof The Floof Remix)” that was released a few weeks ago.
The two-time Grammy-winning musician, artist, and producer released the track as a preview for his previously unreleased Over A Cocaine Rainbow. The album was recorded between 2016-2018.
“In 2017, we went in and recorded an entirely new album called Over A Cocaine Rainbow,” Jennings said in a statement. “Once the album was done, at the time, I felt it was too dark and experimental and wasn’t the right album to be released. Many of the songs from the album are tributes to friends who have passed on. The first song I wrote for the album was taken from a title that the late great Colonel Jon Hensley had given me, ‘Leave Those Memories Alone.'”
Jennings also teamed up with Jason Boland & The Stragglers’ this year as a producer for their upcoming record, The Light Saw Me, out December 3 via Thirty Tigers and Proud Souls Entertainment. Jennings’ fans can anticipate a diverse variety of additional productions coming later this year and in 2022.
“After Jon passed away, I decided to write the song and make it a tribute to him,” Jennings said. “This will be the first in a series of releases from Over A Cocaine Rainbow. I’m very happy this song is finally seeing the light of day and am very proud of this whole album. I hope you enjoy it and stay tuned for more…”
