St. Paul & The Broken Bones have released Love Letter From a Red Roof Inn, the newest single from their ambitious forthcoming album The Alien Coast, out on 28 January on ATO Records. Love Letter From a Red Roof Inn showcases lead singer/lyricist Paul Janeway’s falsetto as he soars over a slow-burning sweet soul groove.
Janeway says, “I remember writing sketches for this song on some hotel notepad. I was lost in thought while looking at the ceiling and just missing home. I was trying not to write in cliches but ended up doing it anyway. The song is meant to sound like someone talking softly over a telephone call. A very hard song to sing because it has to be so delicately done.”
The track’s accompanying live video —filmed in a single take—features the band performing at Ol Elegante studios in their hometown of Birmingham, AL in the studio where they made some of their earliest recordings.
They will perform at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on February 3rd 2022.
