Nick's first video in 18 years!

On March 1, NPR’s “All Songs Considered” premiered Nick’s video for “Sensitive Man”. Watch it here!

Dan Raby: When you’ve been making catchy pop songs as long as Nick Lowe has it’s okay to look to classic sounds for inspiration. Lowe’s new song, “Sensitive Man,” finds the sexagenarian rocker digging deep into the essence of ’50s Sun Records-era rock. The song could feel right at home on a jukebox next to a tune by The Crickets or Jerry Lee Lewis. The backing vocals, Tijuana Brass horns and jangly guitar sounds look to the past but aren’t stodgy nor simply nostalgic. Lowe’s lyrics are simple and witty — expressing complex issues with a wink and smile. Also, as a side note, more songs need to include the word “dinky-doo.” Read the rest here!
