Atlanta-based Manchester Orchestra is hitting the road in support of their third album, Simple Math, which was released earlier this year. The White Sea remix of title track "Simple Math" is dreamy and atmospheric, and addresses the growth the band experienced when recording their latest album. Frontman Andy Hull explains that the track is "about the questions that come with starting the voyage of trying to find some truth. Part of that continued life voyage is about making and performing music that honestly reflects how we are growing." Simple Math is out now, and you can stream the White Sea remix of "Simple Math" here.

“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."
