Last year, Nick Faye & the Deputies paid homage to Sheryl Crow with a video single named after the famed singer, and now they're ready to get their own name out there with a brand new EP.
Titled Lambswool, the new set of songs is due out on March 25. It hears the Regina-based folk-tinged rock'n'rollers exploring "the social consequences of mental and physical fatigue that touring musicians frequently experience."
Despite the trying touring lifestyle, Faye will be hitting the road for a string of solo acoustic dates in March and April to support the new material. Before you catch the fresh batch of music live, though, Exclaim! is giving you the exclusive first listen to Nick Faye & the Deputies' latest single "Wild Bones."
It's a dramatic, melodic folk-pop number that may be given a more stripped-down treatment at the upcoming shows — but you can hear it in its full band glory right now in the player below. Scroll past the list of gigs and hit play to give it a listen.
