Jenny Lewis has shared another single from her upcoming album On the Line. “Heads Gonna Roll” is a slowly bouncing, floating number with piano and strings from The Section Quartet. The tune sees Lewis at her lyrical best with beautiful imagery like, “Took a little trip up north/In a borrowed convertible red Porsche/With a narcoleptic poet from Duluth/We disagreed about everything from Elliott Smith to grenadine/He fell asleep and I put up the roof.”
The song also features an all-star cast of musicians: Ringo Starr on drums, legendary producer and musician Don Was on bass and Benmont Tench of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on keys. Tench delivers an amazing overdriven organ solo about halfway through. You can listen to Jenny Lewis’ “Heads Gonna Roll” in the video above.
“Heads Gonna Roll” is the second single from On the Line. Lewis released the lead single, "Red Bull & Hennessy," back in January. You can check it out here. Along with "Red Bull & Hennessy", Lewis also shared the release date for the new record. On the Line arrives on March 22 and also features a collaboration with Beck.
