The Nashville-based singer-songwriter Majestico is gearing up to release his new album, When Kingdom Come, on February 11th on vinyl through the ATO Record Club. An official digital drop will also follow on March 4th. In advance of both dates, the musician is offering up "Gimme Love," an incendiary, two-minute shot of Stooges-like enthusiasm. 

"It's about falling in love with someone you don't really know, and all the glowy projections that come with it," Majestico (real name: Graham Fitzpenn) tells Rolling Stone. "There's a kind of glory in hollow romance, and this song indulges in it."

Produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes) at his Bomb Shelter Studios, When Kingdom Come boasts 10 far-out garage-rock tracks, including the psych-surf specialty "Love Is God" and the excellently named "La La Gulag." As Majestico, Fitzpenn has drawn comparisons to Mick Jagger, T. Rex and the New York Dolls.

Majestico will support the release of When Kingdom Come with a pair of hometown shows next month before heading to SXSW in March.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
