Cory Chisel's "Born Again" With Members of the Raconteurs: Exclusive Debut

July 29, 2009 3:22 PM ET

Cory Chisel was born and raised in Wisconsin, and his band the Wandering Sons' hearty folk-rock emanates the might and dust of American grit. So it makes sense a handful of bluesy vets show up on their September 29th debut Death Won't Send a Letter — My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel as well as the Raconteurs' Jack Lawrence, Brendon Benson and Patrick Keeler. The latter pair also make appearances in the video for "Born Again," which is premiering right here (click above to watch).

Benson co-wrote "Born Again" and plays bass, while Keeler handles drums. Brian Lazzaro directed the clip, which features a bathtub baptism, a stirring organ line and a melody that's deceptively time-worn. Death Won't Send a Letter was recorded with Joe Chiccarelli (the Shins, White Stripes) at Nashville's Blackbird Studios.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
