The Mavericks Offer Noble Sentiment on 'Come Unto Me'

Click to listen to The Mavericks' 'Come Unto Me'

Country outlaws the Mavericks will release their first studio album in 10 years, In Time, on February 26th through the Valory Music Co. Now you can take a listen to album cut "Come Unto Me," a slithering, seductive rock & roll romp that features what could be the most lascivious accordion solo you'll hear all year – to say nothing of the blistering trumpet that closes the track. "To me the song represents the idea of the knight in shining armor – more than a partner, a protector of sorts," says lead singer Raul Malo. "As the song was swirling around in my head I kept singing the words 'Come Unto Me'. I'm pretty sure I heard that phrase somewhere along the way in my Catholic upbringing. The sentiment may be a bit archaic perhaps. But it is equally romantic and noble. That's what we tried to convey with this song."
