Pokey LaFarge’s new album, Something In The Water, was recorded in Chicago and comes out April 7. According to the singer, “the Midwest is at the heart of this record.”

A fun, romping, old-time track featuring playful lyrics and outstanding musicianship, the song ought to have fans of the Bloomington-Normal-born songwriter excited for the upcoming release. The video matches the lyrics' playfulness, starring Pokey and a girlfriend in a series of hilarious and lighthearted situations.
