The Hanging Stars share tourdates and new single "I Don't Want To Feel So Bad Anymore"


Following the release of their widely acclaimed new album ‘Hollow Heart’ , London cosmic country purveyors The Hanging Stars are sharing their new single ‘I Don’t Want To Feel So Bad Anymore’. Laden with rich harmonies and fuzzy pedal steel, ‘I Don’t Want To Feel So Bad Anymore’ is The Hanging Stars at their sharpest and most upbeat with the track fast becoming a live favorite.

Speaking on the track, lead singer Richard Olsen says, “I Don’t Want To Feel So Bad Anymore. I really don’t. The fundamentalist capitalism, the erosion of compassion and empathy, a million pounds of jewels on a chair next to a ruddy well fed man sporting medals he never earned, telling us there’s no money. What happened? I thought we were supposed to love our neighbour. I feel so bad. “Do Take Heed of Your Greed as You Choke On an Appleseed”. I pretended I spoke truths from beyond the grave. Maybe it felt better that way. I still feel kinda bad.”

'I Don't Want To Feel So Bad Anymore' begins as a throwback to the sound of The See See – from whence The Hanging Stars sprang - with McGuinn-style opening and garage vivacity; it then evolves through hints of baroque and fresh harmonies. 

With their latest album, The Hanging Stars transcended their well-earned reputation as masters of a captivating meld of blissful psychedelic folk and harmony-laden cosmic country. The fourth album from the London five-piece, recorded at Edwyn Collins' Clashnarrow Studios in North-Eastern Scotland, scales fresh artistic heights, as they conjure a record more sonically varied, more contemporary, and less in awe of its influences.
