Classic Rock/Hard Rock/Stoner Rockers MASHEENA Release New Song/Video For GOING DOWN Through Majestic Mountain Records

Going Down is a cover of the classic blues tune written by Don Nix, made famous by Freddie King, and covered by probably every blues band in the world.

Released as a digital single through Majestic Mountain Records.

Still, the energy of the original really resonated with us, so we decided to record a version anyway! During what we ended up calling the "GlaMasheena"- sessions with super producer Iver Sandøy at the helm at Solslottet Studios in December of '23, we tried to get a kind of glammy, 70s production on the tracks.

That sound is more apparent on the other track from those sessions, Married To Rock 'N' Roll, but still we're very happy with the result, and we had a great time recording. What more can you ask? We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it, and as much at love playing it live! Cover artwort for the single by the talented Martin Kvam.

For now, this concludes our little flirt with 70s glam rock, we just finished recording our second album at The Machine Shop in Dripping Springs, Texas, USA, with our new friend Machine (The Producer). Did we bring the glam and blues into those sessions? You’ll have to wait and see!
