The Dead Tongues Have a New Record Out This Spring. Listen to "Won't Be Long" Now.

As a solo artist and with a full band, The Dead Tongues, Ryan Gustafson has crafted some of the area's best twang-tinged tunes of the past decade. Happily, he's continuing that strong streak with a new record, Unsung Passage, which comes out on May 18.

Today, you can listen to "Won't Be Long," the record's first track, which premiered via Stereogum earlier today. The song is a calm, easygoing balance of thoughtful lyrics, Gustafson's wavering voice, and intent acoustic guitar licks, lifted by breezy backing vocals and instrumentals.

If you really like what you hear with "Won't Be Long," you can preorder Unsung Passage in the format of your choice here. The band celebrates the record's release with a June 2 show at Cat's Cradle.
