The Henry Clay People sign to TBD; album in June



The Henry Clay People, whose classic rock-on-a-bender has won a large following in L.A., are signing to TBD Records, a subsidiary of ATO and the home to such bands as Radiohead, White Rabbits and Other Lives. The foursome’s new album, “Somewhere on the Golden Coast,” will be released in June in conjunction with the Ship Records, a new imprint from Earlimart frontman Aaron Espinoza.

“Golden Coast,” which will contain reworked versions of two songs from the Henry Clays’ 2008 release “For Cheap or For Free,” was recorded with Espinoza at the Ship, David Newton at Rollercoaster and Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare studios. The new song “Slow Burn,” along with the freshened anthem “Working Part Time,” were posted on the band’s MySpace page today.
