Ian McLagan

Ian McLagan cast doubt last year on the prospect of a Faces reunion in 2014, and now there’s a reason why: The singer, songwriter and keyboardist is readying the release of “United States,” his first solo album in nearly six years. McLagan today premieres the first song, “All I Wanna Do,” on Speakeasy.

The slow-burning tune rides a deep organ groove as McLagan gives voice to infatuation in a soulful, slightly weathered voice. Eat your heart out, Rod Stewart.

“We had been playing most of the tracks live for some time to knock them into shape, and audiences responded really well to ‘All I Wanna Do,’” McLagan said. “So it was the first song we cut for the record.”

McLagan, 68, is a rock ’n’ roll veteran. He joined the Small Faces in 1965, and stayed on when the band became the Faces in 1969, when Stewart and Ronnie Wood joined following the departure of Steve Marriott. After the Faces called it quits in the ’70s, McLagan collaborated with the Rolling Stones, and he’s since led his own band while collaborating with the likes of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and Paul Westerberg. McLagan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. His most recent previous album, “Never Say Never,” came out in 2008.

The singer recorded the 10-track “United States” in Manor, Texas, with his longtime collaborators in the Bump Band. The album is due June 17 on Yep Roc.
