Gone and You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go is the first new release from My Bubba following last year’s acclaimed Big Bad Good. The Scandinavian folk duo – Icelander Guðbjörg Tómasdóttir (a.k.a. Bubba) and Sweden’s My Larsdotter – formed in 2013 and have since concocted a soulful, unadorned sound all their own utilizing little more than the basic elements of warm harmonies, acoustic guitar, and the Norwegian lap harp known as a cittra. While their prior work was recorded almost entirely as a duo, Gone sees My Bubba joined in Third Man Studios by a backing combo comprised of bassist Jack Lawrence, keyboardist Dean Fertita, and legendary Nashville drummer Whip Triplet. Gone is the A-side and the first of their songs written on a century-old lap harp, which was procured from an old boyfriend’s attic. After breaking up, My Bubba wrote this song about the old lover on the lap harp. On the B-Side, a cover of Bob Dylan’s You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Goserves as one of the first songs the duo ever sang together in Copenhagen. They still play it most evenings together on the road. Tracks recorded with producer Jack White III at Third Man Studios. First Blue Series Release of 2017.
