New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The new single from Reverend Screaming Fingers wanders gracefully across a dusty trail with a rust-tinged sunset as its guide. "Yuma Interlude" captures the soul of the open road and paints a vibrant picture. Inspired by the film 3:10 to Yuma it's a slow burn of melodic lyrical desert music - an appeal from the wandering ghost of a murdered modern lawman. The single is off the upcoming album Music for Driving and Film, vol. iii (the desert years), out November 30.

"Yuma Interlude" is a dance of sights and sounds, with an intricate interplay of each piece composing the whole. Its crisp, cleansing pallet serves as a foundation for the meticulous attention to detail breathing life into each measure. The sweltering heat of the ancient sands match every guitar lick step for calculated step. The two become companions on the journey with a destination unknown. Like an oasis calling to weary travelers, "Yuma Interlude" soothes weary eyes with a hidden oasis of sound.

The upcoming album, Music for Driving and Film, Vol. iii (the desert years), is a product of the desert and western landscape, with all tracks either written and/or recorded in Joshua Tree. The soundscapes shift from Tarantino-esque moments of tension and drama, to more atmospheric ripples through calming Koi ponds. As the third installment in a series that spans 12 years, The Reverend - Lucio Menegon - took a more zen approach to his studio work and the record's final polish. He explains, "It started out half a desert record, and half a New York record. The New York tracks were great, but I ultimately decided to write and record new pieces and give the album a cohesiveness that reflected my experience living and playing music in the high desert environment of Joshua Tree for the past five years. I think listeners will be able to understand what I am trying to get across as a composer and player and see the transition across the three albums."

The album features contributions from Danny Frankel (drums - Victoria Williams, Lou Reed, KD Lang, Nels Cline), Wally Ingram (drums - Sheryl Crow, David Lindley), Victoria Williams (gujeng), Lisa Mednick Powell (keyboards - Julianna Hatfield), and Chris Unck (Musician/Producer - Pink, Lisa Loeb).
