Steve Earle will release a limited edition 7 " single in celebration of Record Store Day on Saturday, April 16th. The A-Side is Earle's version of the Hank Williams song that is the title of both Earle's new studio album and debut novel, I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive.
The song was the last single released during Hank Williams' lifetime in December of 1952. The B-Side is Earle's celebrated original "This City" which has garnered both Emmy and Grammy Award nominations as it was written for HBO's Original Series Treme, in which Earle appears as a cast member. "This City" also closes Earle's T Bone Burnett-produced new album that will be released by New West Records on April 26th. The 7" single is a hand-numbered edition of 2,600 copies on translucent red vinyl with black swirl. The cover of "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive" will be available digitally as a bonus track, and is exclusive in physical form to this 7 inch release.
