Wall looks to "Little Songs"
Wednesday, July 12, 2023
– "Little Songs" is the latest tune to be released from Colter Wall's upcoming album, "Little Songs," out Friday via Wall's longtime label La Honda Records and new partner RCA Records.
The 10-song release features eight originals inspired by and written in Wall's home of Battle Creek, Saskatchewan, Canada along with a Hoyt Axton cut, "Evangelina," and a cover of Ian Tyson's "The Coyote & The Cowboy."
Wall previously released "Evangelina," "Corralling The Blues" and "For A Long While."
With his longtime touring band, Wall returned to Yellowdog Studios in Wimberly, Texas, where he cut his 2020 album, "Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs." to track the 10 tunes that make up "Little Songs." The songs focus on the rural work and social life of the Canadian West.
This release of new music follows the recent partnership between Wall's longtime label La Honda Records and RCA Records, with Little Songs as the first album since the partnership. Prior to the new album, Wall released two standalone singles—"Cypress Hills and the Big Country" and a cover of Cowboy Jack Clement's "Let's All Help the Cowboys (Sing the Blues)."
