“XXX” is the second single released by Slow Runner in a series of monthly singles that never found a home on an album.

Originally recorded years ago, on a rainy Sunday morning at what is now Hello Telescope studio, “XXX” features the sultry vocals of Cary Ann Hearst and the oohs and ahhs of her mate Michael Trent. But since Slow Runner is rerecording each of these songs, they gutted everything from the track except their vocal parts. The result is racy little country song with a lap steel crying in the background.

What we really have here is an intro song to young adult mixtapes. With the line “you’re just too beautiful for ordinary sex”, you should move straight past the dreaded friend-zone and into the fogged up back seat of your parents hoopty.
