Third Man Records is proud to present the latest single Railroad Track, penned and produced by the label’s favorite producer/singer/rock ‘n’ roller from New Zealand by way of the UK, Willy Moon.

The 21-year-old Kiwi Willy writes, records and produces everything on his own and keeps things concise. Nothing grazes the three-minute mark.

Inspired equally by love of the physical energy of Cab Calloway, the brevity of The Ramones, and the style of film noir, Willy doesn’t blend different sounds so much as smash them together-as if rock ‘n’ roll was deep-frozen in 1965 and abruptly re-animated 45 years later by a digital hip-hop producer.

On August 20th (and available for pre-order now) Third Man Records releases the 7″ single and digital download of Willy Moon’s Railroad Track b/w Bang Bang.

Both songs ring out as Big Bang size collisions of R&B (new and old), Gospel and Doo-Wop, making this single one of the most exciting tracks the crew at Third Man has heard this year.
