Today, MAGNET Magazine debuted “Getting Loose,” the second single from Dick Stusso’s sophomore album In Heaven. The rollicking track sees Oakland musician Nic Russo once again inhabiting his lachrymose failed troubadour alter ago, ruminating on his prospects in a soused-up baritone.  Stream the track below.

In Heaven is out Friday, March 2nd on LP, CD, digital, and cassette formats. Pre-orders are available now and review copies are available upon request. All upcoming performances can be found on the tour page.
