Durand Jones Was Inspired By His Hometown For Solo Debut ‘Wait Til I Get Over’

Durand Jones has announces his debut solo album Wait Til I Get Over out May 5th, 2023 via Dead Oceans. He has also released first single “Lord Have Mercy.” Tapping into Rock, Folk, Church music and R&B, Wait Til I Get Over explores “worth and belief through love, longing, odes and prayers”.

Known as one of the singers and principal songwriters of Durand Jones & the Indications, Jones crafts a solo debut that is built on his relationship to his hometown of Hillaryville, Louisiana, a town first established as a form of reparations to previously enslaved Black Americans.

The new single “Lord Have Mercy” has an accompanying video that cuts back and forth between footage of the rural swamps of Louisiana from present day and from the 1920s, capturing the generational struggle of the people of Hillaryville from Jones’ time and from that of his grandmother’s.

Wait Til I Get Over is being released with Exclusive Color-in-Color Tan and Blue Jay Vinyl and comes with a Limited Edition Story Sheet Poster, while supplies last. Black LP, CD and Wait Til I Get Over ‘Fauna‘ T-Shirt and Crewneck Sweatshirt are now available to pre-order.
