Hans Chew has released the new single "Mercy" Download Here to coincide with the two-week tour of the UK and Ireland this May including The Pavilion Theatre Uncut stage at The Great Escape Festival on the 12th May. This time Hans Chew is returning to the UK as a duo with virtuoso guitarist Dave Cavallo at his side. A word to the wise: not to be missed, these duo-performances promise a howling night of piano-driven rock & roll history.
The new single "Mercy" is a juggernaut slab of classic '70's Muscle Shoals piano and wailing Stax-esque Telecaster. With its addictive backbeat groove propelling the song into mythical musical realms and its Otis Redding-like bridge pleading you on its knees, "Mercy" is guaranteed to set the dance floor on fire. Free downloads of the song will be available to all concert-goers on the upcoming tour as well as via QR codes on all tour publicity and ephemera.
Hans Chew's debut album Tennessee & Other Stories... received four-stars from Rolling Stone Magazine, who called it “fabulous... timeless... reminiscent of John Prine and Steve Earle”, and Uncut magazine included the album in their Top 50 Albums of the Year and their 20 Best Americana Albums, as well as nominating the pianist/singer/songwriter for their highest honor, The Uncut Award. We expect even bigger things from Hans Chew with the release of his follow up album.
