Austin, Texas-based one-man band Scott H. Biram is premiering his new song “Crippled & Crazy” exclusively for readers of The Boot.

“Crippled & Crazy” is the definition of autobiographical for Biram, who was severely injured in a 2003 collision involving a semi. In the accident, Biram suffered multiple broken bones and extensive internal injuries — but somehow, he was performing at Austin’s Continental Club just a month later, as he says, with an IV still dangling from his arm.

“I’m crippled and crazy, and I’m out of control,” Biram begins in “Crippled & Crazy.” “I been looking for something that’s never been better than / Yesterday’s phases let my heart grow so cold / I’m just crippled and crazy and out of control.”

Readers can press play below to hear the track.

Biram describes his unique musical sound as “the bastard child of punk, blues, country, hillbilly, bluegrass, chain gang, metal and classic rock.” His songs have been covered by the likes of Shooter Jennings and Hank Williams III; they’ve also been featured on film and television soundtracks. Biram has shared the stage with acts such as Willie Nelson, Ryan Bingham and blues legends like Pine Top Perkins.

“Crippled & Crazy” appears on Biram’s forthcoming album, The Bad Testament, set for release on Feb. 24. Fans can pre-order the album via Bloodshot Records.
