Midland Set To Release New Album ‘Barely Blue’ In September

Midland is all set to release a new album titled ‘Barely Blue’ on 20th September, through Big Machine Records.

The project’s opening track was dropped by the trio on Wednesday, 26th June, titled “Lucky Sometimes,” with an accompanying music video. 

Midland – ‘Barely Blue’

The album consists of eight songs and has been produced by Dave Cobb at Georgia Mae Studios in Savannah. The songs of the album explore loneliness and resilience.

The bassist and vocalist Cameron Duddy “We knew we wanted to go somewhere else. We are all big believers in a certain time and place, a sense of a classic country that comes from roadhouses and bad coffee, miles and miles, and miles on the road–and the idea that, even though we’re all happy, love and life fall apart, but that doesn’t mean you have to, too. When we were writing these songs, it was a trip into all the things in country music we love. You don’t hear much of this kind of unfiltered, hard stuff that comes with the great guitar sounds, the deep harmonies and shuffles you can tuck into. But that’s the essence of what Midland is–and Dave Cobb brought a new altitude to our sound.”

Lead singer/guitarist Mark Wystrach also added the following, “Dave Cobb had been a producer we wanted to work with since we first heard Sturgill Simpson’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. Dave’s eclectic musical background and the way he approaches recording as an experience and not a task made him the perfect match for us. On Barely Blue, we feel like Dave helped us find the sound we’ve been searching for for a long time.
