Hollywood Blues-funk rockers Vintage Trouble release a new single, The Love That Once Lingered today, featuring vocals from fellow Los Angeleno, jazz, blues and soul singer Lady Blackbird. This will be the second single from the band’s forthcoming album, following the previous release of ‘Not The One’.
The Love That Once Lingered featuring Lady Blackbird is taken from the forthcoming album Heavy Hymnal which is out on 23rd June through Cooking Vinyl.

Vocalist of Vintage Trouble, Ty Taylor comments on the track: “It’s always hard in love life, the moment that you open your eyes, heart, and mind to the fact that what “is” has become what “was”. Early in a relationship, a kiss, a hand on the cheek, lovemaking, laughter, and the like would last way beyond the moment of contact. You could be on a train for hours going out of town from your love but smiling because you could still smell their sweet aura.
One day it just stops. Many times the reason is never found. But it is a staggering hurt. And it can come in the blink of an eye. As quickly as love can arrive, it can swiftly depart with no reason or rhyme. Love goes from feverish to cold-hearted. Growing up, there were so many amazing love song duets that always hit harder because it felt like you were hearing two sides of a love story being spoken into your left and right ear simultaneously.
When our producer/her producer Chris Seefried, devilishly suggested it be recorded with Lady Blackbird, the sky opened. And once she played her vocals down, I knew there was a God. And his love would always linger.”
After years as a session vocalist, the LA-based singer Lady Blackbird stunned the music world with her raw vocal power on her 2021 debut album Black Acid Soul.
Since then, she has gone from strength to strength with sold-out European shows, appearances at the Queen’s Jubilee Concert and a BBC Radio Session at Maida Vale. She is honoured to be appearing on this new track: “I first saw Vintage Trouble on “The View”. It was Whoopi Goldberg’s birthday, and I was dancing on my bed. It is such a thrill for me to duet with Ty on this album. I’m a huge fan”
Vintage Trouble comprises lead singer Ty Taylor, guitarist Nalle Colt, bassist Rick Barrio Dill, and drummer Richard Danielson. Taking the best parts of James Brown, Mick Jagger, Bruno Mars and Prince, vocalist Ty is widely regarded as one of the finest frontmen of his generation. The band will be bringing their electric live show to the UK in the coming months including the slot at Glastonbury.
Vintage Trouble formed in Hollywood in 2010 and was ushered almost immediately to the world’s stages by legendary music manager Doc McGhee.
Their acclaimed performance on “Later with Jools Holland” made them the sixth most trending topic in the world and catapulted their debut album “The Bomb Shelter Sessions” to number one on Amazon’s UK charts.
From there, the band was launched into non-stop touring, many times the world over, with acts like the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, The Who, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews, Brian May, Gov’t Mule, Paloma Faith, and Lenny Kravitz to name a few. Vintage Trouble has main-staged Coachella, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Rock in Rio, Byron Bay Blues Festival, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful and most other major festivals around the world and the fellas were also crowned “Best New Band” by Classic Rock magazine.
They’ve appeared the biggest TV shows around the world including David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, and a record four times in one year on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno”.
Don Was signed Vintage Trouble to Blue Note records for the bands second record, “1 Hopeful Rd” and that album was followed by their “Chapter II” prolific quad set of Eps. The band has been heavily featured on movies and commercials including Honda, IBM, Supercuts and John Varvatos and many more.
Now, Vintage Trouble have signed to London-based Cooking Vinyl for a worldwide services deal to release the latest chapter in their career with Heavy Hymnal. “It’s an absolute privilege to be working with one of the finest live acts around, and with their most ambitious record to date Cooking Vinyl intends to push the band to a global audience” – Rob Collins, Cooking Vinyl MD
