Colter Wall will release his highly anticipated new album Songs of the Plains on 12th October 2018 on Young Mary’s Record Co. via Thirty Tigers.

As a teaser for the album, lead single Plain to See Plainsman is out now to stream and download. You can take a listen to the track below:

Songs of the Plains was recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A with producer Dave
Cobb. The album features 11 songs, seven of which were written by Wall. It also features versions of Billy Don Burns’ Wild Dogs, Wilf Carter’s Calgary Round-Up and traditional cowboy songs Night Herding Song and Tying Knots inthe Devil’s Tail.

Fans who pre-order the album will receive Plain to See Plainsman and Calgary Round-Up as instant downloads.

Talking about the album Wall comments, “One thing I’ve noticed over the last few years, in the United States and playing in Europe, is that people all over the world really don’t know much about Canada at all… When you talk about Saskatchewan, people really have no idea. Part of it is because there are so few people there. It’s an empty place—it makes sense that people don’t know much about it. But that’s my home, so naturally I’m passionate about it. With this record, I really wanted people to look at our Western heritage and our culture.”

Wall’s band on the album features Cobb (acoustic guitar), Lloyd Green (pedal steel), Chris Powell (drums, spoons), Jason Simpson (bass), Mickey Raphael (harmonica), Blake Berglund (vocals) and Corb Lund (vocals).
