The wry and dry songstress stopped by Third Man Studios in Nashville over a long weekend in the summer of 2015 to record a couple tracks and damn did she deliver! The A-side “Boxing Day Blues Revisited” is the slinky and bittersweet epilogue to “Boxing Day Blues”, the somber album closer from Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. It’s a strangely catching, plaintive reflection on the loneliness that blossoms when a person you care about treats you like literal garbage. The track is jaunty yet aloof, with CB’s trademark conversational lyricism in perfect contrast to the B-side, a beautifully dark reboot of the Roland S. Howard penned “Shivers” back in the days of The Boys Next Door.
