Still riding high on the release of his brand new album Little Songs, beloved Canadian songsmith Colter Wall has given his ever-loyal fanbase even more to be excited about. Beginning October 11th, Wall and his band will hit the road for ten rare, on-stage appearances over the last few months of 2023.
Beloved Western Canadian songwriter Colter Wall released his new LP, Little Songs, today via his longtime label home La Honda Records in a new joint venture with RCA Records. Blending wit and jest with more serious topics—depression and hardships surrounding Wall’s rural community are common threads throughout Little Songs—Wall puts on a masterclass of making music that gives those who need it a chance to smile.
Colter Wall’s Latest Single “Little Songs” Is All About Turning To A Good Tune When The Outlook Is Bad
“You got to fill the big empty with little songs,” sings Colter Wall in the chorus of his latest single, “Little Songs.” Like a lot of his upcoming LP of the same name, Wall’s “Little Songs” takes a clever and jovial approach to a unique social commentary—that of his rural surroundings in the Canadian West and the day-to-day difficulties faced by the region’s agricultural communities.
If his latest release, “Corralling The Blues,” was a glimpse into the hard times surrounding rural, agricultural communities, then Colter Wall’s new single “For A Long While” is the other side of the coin, laying out exactly what brings a smile to the beloved ranch hand’s face. A prairie ode to a great guitar, a timeless song, rest after a hard day’s work, and a perpetual itch to roam, “For A Long While” plays out like a quartet of vignettes punctuated by breezy harmonica and slide guitar melodies; upbeat and steady.
Colter Wall prevails his songwriting with tough-times emotion with his latest single, “Corralling the Blues.” Wall sings about depression and its largely unaddressed presence in agricultural communities and individuals with such charm that it's easy to miss just how down-and-out the song’s leading character has become. “I might get to thinking that I might could quit drinking, but then what else is there to do?” sings Wall.
“Tequila won't get you across that desert / To Evangelina in old Mexico,” sings the rich Canadian baritone of Colter Wall in his brand new tune, “Evangelina.” The song, originally written and recorded by Hoyt Axton, paints a thirsty picture of longing and half-laid plans to chase down a lost love; all backed up by a band steeped in the traditional sounds of Wall’s prairie homelands.
