X’s JOHN DOE Releases “El Romance-0” – New Single From His Forthcoming Solo Album
Available today – the new single “El Romance-0” from the highly anticipated John Doe solo effort, Fables in a Foreign Land. The song, which also features Los Lobos’ Louie Pérez adding his lyrics in Spanish, comes alive in the new music video, recently shot in Austin by director Gilbert Trej, premiering today.
As Doe expands on the ironic song, “This song began in a dream. Louie Pérez from Los Lobos added more dimension to the character with his lyrics in Spanish. The subject of the song is so full of himself that he believes he can choose his own nickname. We all know, you can’t do that.”
Also announcing today, a string of North American tour dates featuring the John Doe Folk Trio beginning April 30 in San Diego and winding through such cities as Austin, Philadelphia, Boston and the mid-west before ending the first leg on September 9&10 with two shows in Park City, UT.
Fables in a Foreign Land will hit retail and digital outlets on May 20, 2022 – Doe’s first as part of his new partnership with Fat Possum Records. Guest co-writers on the album include Shirley Manson (Garbage), Exene Cervenka (X) ,Terry Allen and Louie Pérez (Los Lobos).
