A less scientifically minded person might find some meaning in that fact that it has taken 5 years for Hayes Carll to release his fifth album, Lovers and Leavers – which follows the commercial and critical success of 2011’s KMAG YOYO (& other American stories) – and that it was recorded in, drum-roll please, just 5 days.

Spooky, huh?  Yeah, not really.  The 5 year gap is only a minor extension on the 3 year turn-around of his previous records, and is probably due in part to his switching record labels and divorcing during that time; being the fifth album is a quirk of timing; and recording the album in 5 days… well, actually, that is something pretty special.
