Colter Wall’s Latest Single “Little Songs”

Canadian singer-songwriter Colter Wall has announced the release of his latest single, “Little Songs,” which serves as a preview of his upcoming album of the same name. The song combines clever and jovial elements with a unique social commentary on the hardships faced by rural communities in the Canadian West, particularly in the agricultural sector. Wall’s baritone voice delivers lyrics that touch on the day-to-day difficulties and depression prevalent in his neighboring ranches and farms. “Little Songs” is an ode to the healing power of music and aims to fill the emotional void experienced by listeners.

The album, “Little Songs,” is set to be released on July 14th and features a total of ten tracks. Eight of these songs are original compositions inspired by Wall’s hometown of Battle Creek, Saskatchewan, while the album also includes covers of Hoyt Axton’s “Evangelina” and Ian Tyson’s “The Coyote & The Cowboy.” The LP was recorded at Yellowdog Studios in Wimberly, Texas, where Wall collaborated with his longtime touring band and co-producer Patrick Lyons. The album delves into the rural work and social life of the Canadian West, showcasing Wall’s resonant baritone voice and his ability to evoke both somber and uplifting emotions.

The release of “Little Songs” follows a recent partnership between Wall’s label, La Honda Records, and RCA Records, making this album the first release under the new collaboration. Prior to this, Wall released two standalone singles and the Billboard-charting album “Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs” in 2020. Additionally, he treated fans to the vinyl-only release of “Colter Wall and the Scary Prairie Boys’ Live In Front Of Nobody,” a full-band show turned indie record store exclusive. Further information on Wall’s albums can be found on his website, along with updates on his upcoming live appearances, including performances at the Dusty Boots Festival in Denver and Montana’s Under The Big Sky.
