Charley Crockett will release his latest album, The Man From Waco, on Sept. 9 via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. The lead single from the project, “I’m Just A Clown,” is out now.
Crockett wrote or co-wrote all 14 tracks on the album, which started out as a demo session with producer Bruce Robison at Robison’s studio outside of Austin and turned into Crockett’s first album made with his band, The Blue Drifters, backing him. Mostly first takes with only a handful of overdubs, The Man From Waco finds Crockett refining his “Gulf & Western” sound, which continues to draw an ever-growing legion of fans.
“I just wanted an honest partnership: do it at your place, live to tape, everybody in the room,” Crockett says of the recording experience. “The magic is in the performances on that tape. That’s what Bruce wanted to do, that’s what I wanted to do. When we were done, I said ‘these are masters, not demos.’”
Crockett is currently on the road across the U.S., mixing headlining shows with a slot on Willie Nelson’s roving Outlaw Music Festival and other festival appearances. He will also head to Europe and the UK for a headlining tour at the end of October.
