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. “I guess that’s how it’s always been,” Wall sings through each refrain in his signature hardscrabble baritone. “Or at least for a long while.”

“For A Long While” is the latest tune to be released from Wall’s upcoming album, Little Songs—out July 14th via Wall’s longtime label La Honda Records and new partner RCA Records. The ten-song LP features eight originals inspired by—and written in—Wall’s home of Battle Creek, Saskatchewan, along with a Hoyt Axton cut, “Evangelina,” and a cover of Ian Tyson’s “The Coyote & The Cowboy.”

More About Little Songs: With his longtime touring band, Wall returned to Yellowdog Studios in Wimberly, Texas, where he cut his 2020, Billboard-charting album, Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs, to track the ten tunes that make up Little Songs. With co-producer Patrick Lyons, Wall tracked eight original songs and two fan-favorite covers from Ian Tyson and Hoyt Axton. Little Songs is an upbeat, sometimes somber glimpse into the rural work and social life of the Canadian West, and, more so than with previous albums, opens emotional turns as mature and heartening as the resonant baritone voice writing them.
