Lund recovers with "Cabin Fever"

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 – Corb Lund will give listeners a dose of "Cabin Fever," when he releases his next disc on Aug. 14 on New West Records.

The Canadian singer's 2009 U.S. debut, "Losin' Lately Gambler," earned him an Americana Music Award nomination for New & Emerging Artist.

"Chaos and irreverence informs the way I write. I'm also drawn to harmony and chord choices that are outside the norms of country," said Lund.

Hayes Carll joins Lund on the humorous Bible on the Dash, for which he flew to Alberta, Canada to co-write and record in person.

Lund and his band The Hurtin' Albertans did with very little overdubbing. Lund said, "Some of my favorite records are really raw and feel casual and real. We didn't use a click track. There's cohesion with a band that plays live together so much and has been together for 10 years."

A Juno Award winner who has multiple Canadian Gold Records, Lund also won the Canadian Country Music Awards Roots Artist of the Year seven times running.

Songs on the CD are:

1. Gettin' Down On The Mountain

2. Dig Gravedigger Dig

3. Bible On The Dash

4. September

5. Mein Deutsches Motorrad

6. Cows Around

7. (You Ain't A Cowboy) If You Ain't Been Bucked Off

8. Drink It Like You Mean It

9. Priceless Antique Pistol Shoots Startled Owner

10. The Gothest Girl I Can

11. One Left In The Chamber

12. Pour 'Em Kinda Strong

Fifteen years ago, Corb Lund defined his approach to modern country music: Hair in my eyes like a highland steer, spring in my step like a white-tailed deer; hitch in my hip like an old sheep dog, puff up my chest like a big bull frog. As fitting a self-written elegy for a rock 'n' rollin' country singer that has been scribed. Not much has changed since 2005: Lund's hair is only slightly more stylish, but his music continues to spark with authentic assurance and acumen, and »»»

While it is perhaps unfair to put too much focus on the producer of an album, the current weight of having a production credit from Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson) is certain to garner notice from fans of high quality songwriters. Cobb's recent albums have an organic sound showcasing his natural ability to push an artist to realize their full creative potential. Canadian artist Corb Lund decided to work with Cobb on his latest release, and the results are eye opening. »»»
