It’s been four long years since Austin-based singer-songwriter and rock musician Jesse Woods shared his debut full-length, Get Your Burdens Lifted. We’re happy to announce the return of Woods and his stunning country-folk songs with a premiere of Jesse’s newest track, “U.F.O.”. Listen.
“U.F.O.” is a lead single to Jesse Woods’ forthcoming second LP, Autoflower, a cover of the 1969 song of the same name by the mysterious rock icon Jim Sullivan. Jim’s legacy was relatively obscured after 1975, when he disappeared in the New Mexican desert, never to be seen again. Matt Sullivan (no relation) of Light in the Attic reissued “U.F.O.” along with the original LP it was featured on back in 2010.
Jesse Woods strips back some of the expansive production ideas featured on Jim Sullivan’s original–highlighting the track’s exceptional songwriting and honing in on the song’s melancholic feel. Stream Jim Sullivan’s “U.F.O.” below.
