THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: Kevin Morby – ‘Aboard My Train’

If you’re thinking to yourself, “Hey, Kevin Morby put out an album last year, he can’t possibly have new music out already,” well, we have a pleasant surprise for you. Yes, his excellent Singing Saw came out in 2016, and what’s being described as the “companion piece” to that album will be out in June. Look for City Music on June 16, and look for Kevin in Chicago sometime in late-summer.
