Primal Scream, ‘It’s Alright, It’s OK,’ [Listen]
Hear that? That’s the sound of Primal Scream getting their neo-Stones groove on with ‘It’s Alright, It’s OK,’ the second track to surface from their forthcoming ‘More Light’ album. The veteran British rockers used to spend entire albums pursuing that rolling-with-the-Stones sound — sometimes creating retro-fueled masterpieces (‘XTRMNTR’), sometimes not (‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up’) — and ‘Alright’ shows they’re still more than comfortable on the nostalgia tip.
‘It’s Alright’ is a bit different than first ‘More Light’ single, ‘2013’ (check out that tune’s bizarre video here), which brings a more upbeat and decidedly British garage-rock sound to the proceedings. But it certainly continues to pique our interest in the album, which, despite drawing on sounds six decades in the past, arrives six weeks in the future. ‘More Light’ drops May 7.
