Brent Cobb will release his upcoming album, Keep ‘Em On They Toes, on Oct. 2 via his own label, Ol’ Buddy Records, and Thirty Tigers. The 10-track album was produced by Brad Cook, follows two projects released via Low Country Sound/Elektra, 2018’s Providence Canyon and 2016’s Shine On Rainy Day.
Today, he has released the new album’s title track, along with a video directed by Christian Hansen.
“To try and not infiltrate the listener’s spirit’s own interpretation of Keep ‘Em On They Toes, I’ll just say that it was initially inspired by the birth of my son,” Cobb says. “With that said, it’s a mantra that I live by. One that I hope anyone could live by. That mantra is, if it’s good for your own heart, and you got a good heart, do it. Do it whether folks see it coming or not. Live your own life. Be happy.
“To me, listening to this album feels like I’m sitting there with somebody, having a conversation,” Cobb adds. “I would hope that it feels like sitting with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. There’s nothing like being alone and listening to an album that is quiet and conversational—like those old records by Jerry Lee Lewis, Roger Miller, or Willie Nelson. I hope my music is that way to somebody now.”
