Lindi Ortega Announces 'Tin Star' Album, Hits Up Canada on North American Fall Tour

Lindi Ortega Announces 'Tin Star' Album, Hits Up Canada on North American Fall Tour
Lindi Ortega has been releasing albums at a yearly pace as of late, having dropped Little Red Boots in 2011 and Cigarettes & Truckstops in 2012. This year will be no exception, since the alt-country-leaning Torontonian will drop Tin Star on October 8 through Last Gang.

The album was produced by Dave Cobb (Imaginary Cities, Shooter Jennings), and a press release notes that it was inspired by Ortega's move from Toronto to Nashville.

"It's always my goal to raise the bar with each record I put out," the songwriter said in a statement. "I have witnessed so much talent living in Nashville that has inspired me to push myself even further. I like to work with different musicians and producers to change the feel of every release. I don't want to risk making the same record over and over. Working with a new group brings a new spirit and new ideas to the music."

Considering Ortega's move to Nashville, it's only fitting that the album draws on classic country. You can hear a distinct trace of this by streaming the title track over at Paste. A live version of the song is embedded below.
