Nikki Lane: First Taste from “Seein’ Double”

May 30, 2013 0 comments

We have been highly anticipating Nikki Lane‘s sophomore LP, “Seein’ Double,” even before she hit the studio last Fall with producer Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) at his Nashville recording studio, Easy Eye Sound Studio. Tracks from the album haven’t been released yet, but thanks to a 4-song live session with Daytrotter that dropped this Memorial Day, we finally get a glimpse of what to expect once “Seein’ Double” hits the shelves.

The session includes the LP’s titled track, the heavy-hearted song “Good Man,” and our personal favorite, “Right Time,” which you can stream for a limited time below. Check out the full Daytrotter session HERE and keep an ear out “Seein’ Double” later this year.

And while we are talking about highly-anticpated Nikki Lane records… When do you think we’ll hear some tunes from Nikki’s side project Precious Stones? Hopefully soon… Click HERE for details.

Okay now, we’re not ones for helping start rumors, but if this one’s true… WE CAN’T WAIT!!!

While casually checking our Twitter this weekend we noticed a tweet from Nikki Lane that said “Meet the Precious Stones” and featured an Instagram photo shown above (and HERE) that includes (from the left): Ruby Rogers from The Black Belles, Jessica McFarland from Heavy Cream, Nikki Lane, and Makenzie Green from Birdcloud. A pretty impressive line-up if you asked us!

But yeah, why assume that these 4 ladies are forming a band just because of this post and the fact they’re all musicians, right? Especially with Nikki, who has been in the studio this month recording with The Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach at his Nashville Easy Eye Sound Studio… But then, we saw this! Taken from a practice session last night:

Hopefully this new Precious Stones project sees the light of day… because with a line-up that has his kind of talent, we’re in for something HUGE:

If you follow Hacienda on Twitter, then you already know the band has been in Nashville the past week at Easy Eye Studio recording the follow-up to their Dan Auerbach produced ‘Big Red & Barbacoa.’ The band just tweeted the following this morning:

Who is this “Dan” they speak of? Well, no one other than Mr. Auerbach, back in the producer chair again for another round! And believe it or not, Dan did this recording session just after finishing the new, not-yet-titled Black Keys LP– the follow-up to ‘Brothers’ with producer Danger Mouse… On top of that, he’s about to start producing new records for The Growlers and Dr. John as well… Busy guy!

Follow Hacienda on Twitter HERE and follow their journey via pics HERE as they recorded in Nashville… Can’t wait to hear it fellas!:
