Carl Broemel Announces 4th of July Deluxe Edition, Debuts New Track

My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel will release a Deluxe Edition of his third solo record, 4th of July. In our review of the record, we hailed the album for its “serene folk-rock: twangy pedal steel, brushed drums and daydreamy lyrics,” The new digital edition presents the original eight songs along with four new tracks: three live songs record in Mexico, along with “Coffee and Wine,” a studio cut that we premiere today.

Broemel tells Relix, ““When I was working on the songs for 4th of July I was struggling with getting enough sleep. So I was thinking about sleeping, dreaming and alertness and the in between stages between all of those when I wrote this song. It is kind of a silly song, written in a few minutes, but I really meant it when it came out! I was abusing coffee and wine and wondering how to kick both because they are just temporary fixes. I ended up keeping it off of the original album so the other songs would fit comfortably on the vinyl, but am excited to have it see the light this time around.

“My Dad, Robert Broemel, who is a retired symphony musician, played clarinet and viola on the song as well. I have wanted to put out in the world at some point, if only for that reason, as it is something we got to work on together.”
