The Scottish one-hit wonder who failed to understand the precepts of punk rock in her 2006 smash single ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)’ is back with her fourth album.

Titled Flesh And Blood, it was recorded with The Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson, drummer Steve Gorman and Black Crowe and session guitarist Audley Freed in Nashville.

“Sandi really stretched herself and made a bold new album,” says Rich Robinson, “Her songs are honest, vulnerable and very strong.  Her vocal abilities are showcased really well, as is her guitar work, and harp playing. I think Sandi’s made a great record. It was a joy to work with her.”

Thom has also enlisted Nashville stars Mike Webb and James Haggerty, and guest spots from saxophonist Bobby Keys, and singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie .

You can download the first single ‘Sun Comes Crashing Down’ for free at her website, and the album will be released on August 27.

Check out Thom talking about the new album and samples some sounds below.
