We are excited to present the new The Hold Steady song, “The Last Time That She Talked To Me”. We played this in November 2018 at Brooklyn Bowl so the trainspotters know of its existence, but here is the full blown studio version. It was recorded with Josh Kaufman and D. James Goodwin at The Isokon and features Stuart Bogie and Dave Nelson on horns. Annie Nero helped us out with some backup vocals. We think it’s a super fun song, and we are planning to play it in London at The Weekender, which begins THIS FRIDAY! Some final details on those shows will be announced tomorrow. Stay tuned!
If you choose to download this song, a donation will be made to benefit the K+L Guardian Foundation. The K+L Guardian Foundation was formed to benefit "Jersey" Mike Van Jura's children after he suddenly passed away in November 2012 at only 36 years of age. Jersey Mike was the unofficial leader of The Unified Scene.
“The Last Time That She Talked To Me” will be available on all digital streaming platforms this Friday, March 8.

4 amazing works from a master songwriter, and a personal hero of mine. Unusual, soft, and subtle arrangements make this EP an example of why the EP remains an enduring format for the delivery of song. dylanmblanchard

I've listened to this album and rolled the amazing lyrics around my mind for about three days straight. I don't have any excuses left not to own the vinyl. I thought I was done buying vinyl for a while, but this album speaks to me like no album has for years. It's a masterwork and a classic. I think, in twenty years, bands will most likely cover these songs sort of like they cover Leonard Cohen and Lou Reed now. Highly recommended! Mubla Na Thguob
