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. Co-produced with Patrick Lyons, “Corralling the Blues” is a song written from experience and played in-studio by Wall’s long-time touring band. Fluttering harmonica melodies and sly dobro fills weave together Wall’s to-the-point, tongue-in-cheek lyrics, with enough jest to make even the most downhearted listener crack a smile. “And it’s this contemplation that spurs conversation with the ceiling that I been talking to.”

“Corralling the Blues” appears on Wall’s upcoming album, Little Songs which is due out on July 14th via Wall’s longtime label La Honda Records and new partner RCA Records. On Little Songs, fans of Wall’s will find the same hardscrabble voice they’ve loved over the years connecting the contemporary world to the values, hardships, and celebrations of rural life. From the titular track he sings, “You might not see a soul for days on them high and lonesome plains. You got to fill the big empty with little songs.” 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.
