Drive-By Truckers co-founder Patterson Hood will release his third solo record, Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance, on September 11th through ATO Records. Afterwards, he'll embark on a U.S. tour with his backing band, the Downtown Rumblers.

To get a head start in learning all the lyrics, you can now stream all of Heat Lightning here. It's a record of bare-bones, rock-inflected country that finds Hood navigating the worlds of addiction ("Betty Ford"), heartbreak ("After the Damage"), long and lonesome late-night drives ("1201") and more.
