Whitehorse Put A Nimble Classic Country Twist On Their New Album "I'm Not Crying, You're Crying"

Article Contributed by IVPR | Published on Sunday, January 15, 2023

Award-winning Canadian duo Whitehorse—Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet—just released their eighth LP, I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying, leaving no emotional, personal, fantastical, or political stone unturned. The new album finds the pair venturing deeper into classic country music touchstones than ever before; a move that is both a homecoming and an evolution of their sound. A twist on the ever-present “pandemic album,” Whitehorse distilled and transcended the gloom and uncertainty of the time with a collection about heartbreak and loyalty; shaking things up and hunkering down. The resulting twelve-song collection is playful yet profound; masterfully simple and timeless—and is out today on Six Shooter Records, surprising and charming critics and fans alike.

Stream or purchase I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying today at this link, where you can listen to fan favorites like “Division 5,” "If The Loneliness Don’t Kill Me,” and new tracks like “Bet The Farm,” which is a chapel-ready ode to loving love.
