Austin-based rockers Heartless Bastards have recently signed with Partisan Records, and they have announced their next album, Arrow, to be released on February 14th. Arrow, which is a follow-up to 2009's The Mountain, was produced by Spoon's drummer and producer, Jim Eno, at his home studio in Austin, and written by singer Erika Wennerstrom during her travels. Heartless Bastards' first single off the new album, the heartfelt "Parted Ways," was greatly inspired by Wennerstrom's travels. "I wrote 'Parted Ways' on a solitary trip out to a friend's ranch in west Texas. It was right at the foot of the Davis Mountains. It was a great place to go and collect my thoughts after a solid two years of touring on the last album," she explains.
Heartless Bastards' Arrow won't be available until February 14th, but you can download "Parted Ways" for free here.
