Sometimes you just want to stretch out after a long days work and have a beer and daydream about simpler times. 24-year-old Canadian crooning cowboy Colter Wall writes and performs songs perfectly suited for such an activity. Now more songs of dusty trails and scenic Canadian locals are on the way when Wall releases his third album late this summer. “Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs” is slated for a August 28th release as the follow-up to his 2018 album “Songs of the Plains.”
Wall rounded up his hard-working touring band — Patrick Lyons (pedal steel, dobro, mandolin), Jake Groves (harmonica), Jason Simpson (bass), and Aaron Goodrich (drums); joined by Emily Gimble on piano and Doug Moreland on fiddle — and recorded and self-produced “Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs” at Adam Odor and David Percefull’s Yellow Dog Studio in Wimberley, Texas.
Ahead of the album’s release, Wall has shared a new song “Western Swing & Waltzes,” a more relatively upbeat offering than his past faire.
