Episode 027 of The New Slang Podcast finds singer-songwriter K. Phillips returning. Recorded about a month back, this 45-minute conversation has Phillips and company with about 10 dates left on his cross-country venture with Counting Crows and Rob Thomas. On the episode, we discuss the ins and outs of being out on tour versus playing weekend shows across Texas during his early years, running into ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Elaina Kay (who rented out Phillips’ Nashville room these past few months), the iconic songs of Counting Crows & Matchbox Twenty, Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville,” Phillips’ iconic “Came 2 Fuck,” and writing songs with Lubbock’s William Clark Green & Ross Cooper. K. Phillips’ upcoming album, Dirty Wonder, is officially due out this Fall.
