"This record is the closest I've ever gotten to the sound I hear in my head in the middle of the night."
     — Chris Stamey


Lovesick Blues, set for February 5, 2013, release; available on CD and as a two-disc 45-RPM deluxe vinyl package.

Lovesick Blues is Chris Stamey's first full-length release since A Question of Temperature, his 2005 collaboration with Yo La Tengo. The new album follows on the heels of Falling Off the Sky, the long-awaited, much-acclaimed reunion album of the dB's, as well as Stamey's involvement as musical director and orchestrator for a series of all-star concert performances of Big Star's classic Third album in New York, London, Austin and Carrboro, NC.

"With Big Star now put to rest following the passing of Alex Chilton, Stamey is the rightful person to fill his shoes. Lovesick Blues offers more than enough proof that he's fully prepared to do just that."

     — Blurt
