Prairie-bred country-tinged rock'n'roller Corb Lund is ready to return with his latest LP Things That Can't Be Undone next week, but Exclaim! is giving you a sneak peek at the new material with an advanced stream of the entire album.
The record was made with producer Dave Cobb at his Low Country Sound studio in Nashville and hears Lund delivering a polished set of "wry observations, darkly biting tales, rural balladry and keen storytelling."
Twangy tales of life on the road ("Run This Town," "Goodbye Colorado") are intertwined with softer fare like "Alice Eyes" and honky-tonk jams like "Talk Too Much," eventually culminating with the sweet, earnest album closer "Sunbeam."
And while fans won't be disappointed with the new set of songs, they should know by now that Lund is always looking for ways to implement new twists to his classic alt-country sound. "I would like to think it's a healthy balance of pushing our stylistic boundaries and pushing our audience's ears, but keeping it familiar enough so that they're not totally alienated," Lund said in a press release. "I think I've trained them by now to expect different things."
You can hear the latest incarnation of his sound by listening to Things That Can't Be Undone in the player below before it hits shelves on October 9 via New West Records. You can also see Corb Lund's upcoming North American dates here.
