Glide Magazine premiers Jeff Slate's latest single "Till New York City Dies"

The NYC-based rock musician has recruited a who's who of famed rock musician friends for this effort, including Dave Stewart, Earl Slick, Duff McKagan, and members of Paul Weller’s band and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Jeff’s fourth solo album, The Last Day of Summer, featuring Dave Stewart, Duff McKagan, Earl Slick, members of Paul Weller’s band and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, is due May 17th via Schnitzel Records. The photo shoot for the album was done by none other than famed rock photographer Bob Gruen.

Jeff's latest single “Till New York City Dies” from the new LP will be released on all DSPs on March 12th. Listen HERE!

Jeff shares some insight into this track: “‘Till New York City Dies' was born during long, solitary walks around the City during the pandemic lockdown. The chorus came first, and of course anchors the song, but because the music had an unexpected bounce to it, it pointed the direction of the song in a positive direction, rather than somber or hopeless.

Strangely, because it was tracked individually, with all the players working to my acoustic guitar and voice, everyone seemed to know just what to do without me having to explain it. Ben Gordelier, the drummer from Paul Weller's band, was first, and added a shuffle beat and upright bass that helped point the way, but his bandmate, Steve Cradock, Weller's long-serving lead guitarist, chose to add piano, and his part lightened things even more.

Earl Slick's country-tinged, Stonesy guitar, and the atmospheric parts that Leonard Cohen producer Don Miguel added were icing on the cake to the rest of the parts that co-producer Eric Lichter and I added, taking a sad song and making it better."
