Free MP3: David Newton (Mighty Lemon Drops) & Thee Mighty Angels, ‘In Love and War’

Former Mighty Lemon Drops guitarist David Newton debuted his new band David Newton & Thee Mighty Angels last fall with the five-track Paint the Town EP, and now the group is at work on a full-length album — which we can preview here via the brand-new track “In Love and War,” available below as a free download for the next two weeks.

On the band’s Facebook page, Newton — who also payed with The Blue Aeroplanes following the split of The Mighty Lemon Drops — writes: “Just finished up a new song for the album. I had a dream that I wrote a song with the Pet Shop Boys called ‘In Love And War’… this is my interpretation of what I remember it sounding like :-)”

Check it out:







  1. Much like the last batch of David Newton songs, this is absolutely marvelous. I enjoyed their debut EP immensely — unbelievably good pop songs with enormous hooks. Looks like the full length will be more of the same, which is perfect.

  2. I like this song a lot. and the Lemon Drops are one of my favorite, most underrated bands of the 80’s/early 90’s.
