Los Lobos will return with Native Sons on July 30th via New West Records. The 13-song set was produced by Los Lobos in East Los Angeles and the band has shared a spirited cover of Jackson Browne’s “Jamaica Say You Will” off the LP (below).
From Native Sons‘ extensive album liner notes, Louie Perez Jr. says “I used to go over to David’s house after school and listen to records with him, and this song always resonated for me—such a beautiful melody. And the narrative was something I was attracted to. The storytelling. This song in particular inspired me to write from introspection—and I saw that my songs could be personal, but I could still write them to be universal. To this day, that’s been the template.”
