Oklahoma-based Americana duo, The Imaginaries, are following their just-released Hometown Christmas album, out November 15th, with the “Thinking ‘Bout You” music video. The single is taken from the husband-and-wife team’s forthcoming debut album, which is due in the Spring of 2020, and was recorded with bassist David Hood (Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Paul Simon), and session musicians such as Little Richard guitarist Kelvin Holly (Jason Isbell, Gregg Allman, Neil Young), bassist Shonna Tucker (Jason Isbell, Drive By Truckers, John Paul White), and keyboardist NC Thurman (Hank Williams Jr, Gregg Allman, Little Richard) in Muscle Shoals, AL.

For the recording, the duo, Shane Henry (guitar, vocals) and Maggie McClure (keys, piano, vocals), also flew in drummer Rob Humphreys (Leonard Cohen, Jason Mraz), and worked with both keyboardist Dan Walker (Heart), and Chad Copelin (Sufjan Stevens, Christina Perri, Ben Rector) back in Oklahoma for keys and additional production. The thirteen-track Hometown Christmas album includes both covers and originals, some of which have been featured in numerous Hallmark Channel Christmas movies, and in rotation at restaurants/retailers like a Macy’s, FedEx, Walgreens, Panera Bread, and Kohl’s.
