Flatland Cavalry’s new album, Welcome to Countryland, will be released July 2 and is available for pre-order now. In advance of the release, the album’s first single, “Some Things Never Change,” is out today (May 14).
Produced by Jake Gear and recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios, Welcome to Countryland showcases 14 new songs, including collaborations with Hailey Whitters and Kaitlin Butts. Through this project, the band hopes to make their mark on the country music landscape, exploring some of life’s most universal themes with their sense of storytelling and musicianship.
“We spent our time off the road in 2020 working diligently towards this new record. The support from our fans, friends and family gave us hope to ‘go for broke’ and pour our hearts and souls into the writing and creating of this new batch of songs,” shares lead singer Cleto Cordero. “I think it is our favorite record that we’ve created to date because it was made during such a critical time in our journey, which, I think, brought a whole new sense of wonder and significance to the project. We can’t wait to give our fans what we believe is our most meaningful album to date!”
Since forming in 2012, Flatland Cavalry has toured relentlessly across the country, building a passionate grassroots fanbase as they went. Based in both Texas and Nashville, Flatland Cavalry consists of Cordero (vocals, acoustic guitar), Jason Albers (drums, background vocals), Jonathan Saenz (bass, background vocals), Reid Dillon (electric guitar), Wesley Hall (fiddle) and Adam Gallegos (piano, keys, mandolin, banjo).
