Deer Tick release first track off The Black Dirt Sessions

The Black Dirt Sessions were recorded late last year at the Black Dirt Studios in upstate New York by the folk-rock Deer Tick. The album contains lead vocalist and songwriter John McCauley approaching the piano alone for a few track like "Goodbye, Dear Friend" and a re-work of"Christ Jesus," reaching into darker corners of introspection with topics like death, mortality and the existence of God. Deer Tick had an astounding year in 2009, with NBC Nightly News' Brian Williams leading the fan parade on his BriTunes music site as the band toured with Neko Case, Jenny Lewis, Jason Isbell and had a documentary entitled City of Sin filmed about them. Surely many cannot wait for what's to come. The Black Dirt Sessions are set to drop June 8th.
