Singer Garland Jeffreys is offering fans a free online stream of ''Til John Lee Hooker Calls Me,' a standout track from his latest album, 'The King of In Between.' (Listen to the song below.)

Garland quotes the line "I'm not getting any younger / I'm not feeling very old" as the cornerstone lyric behind ''Til John Lee Hooker Calls Me.' "That was the starting point for the song, and it led to thinking about musical heroes of mine who kept playing into their later years," he tells The Boot. "And [the line] 'James Brown's cape is on the auction block / should be in a museum under key and lock' is a reference to how we need to respect our great American musicians and their contributions. That's the essence of the song. It's all about keeping on, continuing to create music and staying in the game."
