Los Lonely Boys are hard at work on their follow-up to 2011's Rockpango and have just teased out this new track, "Blame It on Love." In it, the rockers combine their musical Tejano roots with bluesy rock, harmonizing on tales of difficult times and romantic interests. There's plenty of time to jam out, too, and Los Lonely Boys pack in some slick guitar work between the storytelling. "It can turn your whole life upside down/ If you need a reason why," they sing.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
