New Music Friday: 12th of June by Lyle Lovett

Lyle Lovett had a new album come out a few weeks ago. I’ve been enjoying the title track, “12th of June” for a couple of months since it was released as a single. I’ve never really paid that much attention to Lyle Lovett. I really like his song, “If I Had a Boat”, but I’m not even sure if I’ve ever heard another Lyle Lovett song despite being very much aware of his existence for decades. Based on this song and my historical love of “If I Had a Boat”, I thought maybe I’d just been sleeping on Lyle Lovett all these years and he is someone who I would really love if I had ever given him a chance. Then I listened to the rest of this album. I have no idea if it’s representative of any of his earlier work, but I can say that “12th of June” is the only song that I care for on it and in my opinion sounds nothing like the rest of the songs on it. So maybe I haven’t been missing out on Lyle Lovett that much. I guess I’ll just go back to enjoying the one song I come across every decade or so.
