Colter Wall’s New Album

‘Little Songs’

Out 14 July 2023

Colter Wall‘s Little Songs is due out on July 14 via La Honda Records/RCA Records.

“These songs were written over the last three years. I penned most of them from home and I think the songs reflect that.”

Colter Wall

Tequila won’t get you across that desert / To Evangelina in old Mexico,” in the gloriously deep and distinctive voice of Wall is a feature in his new song, a take on Hoyt Axton’s “Evangelina” with regular Wall themes of missed plans, lost love and prairie homelands.  

From the titular track he sings, “You might not see a soul for days on them high and lonesome plains. You got to fill the big empty with little songs.” The ten-song LP features eight originals inspired by—and written in—Wall’s home of Battle Creek, Saskatchewan, along with the aforementioned Axton cut and a cover of Ian Tyson’s “The Coyote & The Cowboy.” 

With his long-time touring band, Wall returned to Yellowdog Studios in Wimberly, Texas, where he recorded his 2020, Billboard-charting album, Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs, to track the ten tunes that make up Little Songs, the album co-produced with Patrick Lyons.

This release of new music is the first album of the joint venture between Wall’s long-time label La Honda Records and new partner RCA Records. As well as the 2020 album mentioned above, Wall has released two stand-alone singles recently – “Cypress Hills and the Big Country” and a cover of Cowboy Jack Clement’s “Let’s All Help the Cowboys (Sing the Blues)” – and Colter Wall and the Scary Prairie Boys’ Live In Front Of Nobody, a 2021 live stream, full-band show turned indie record store, vinyl-only release.
