Celebrates new album “Things That Can’t Be Undone”
recorded with 2016 Grammy nominee Producer Dave Cobb“The pairing of Lund and Cobb on Things That Can’t Be Undone is a feather in both their caps; as an album, it forges a new path in country music, yet remains exceptionally close to the tradition’s heart.” – AllMusic.com
TORONTO – After lauching his new record Things That Can’t Be Undone worldwide on US label New West Records this fall, Juno award-winning artist and heartthrob cowboy Corb Lund begins the new year taking Alberta culture on the road. Corb and his longtime band The Hurtin’ Albertans tour the Netherlands, Germany and England before returning to Canada at the end of January for his first two month tour of his home and native land since recording the album in Nashville with 2016 Grammy Award nominee producer Dave Cobb.
The record has received rave reviews in the US, Canada and UK. The album remains in the top ten of Americana charts since its release in North America. MOJO writes,“It’s great credit to both Lund and his versatile backing band, The Hurtin’ Albertans, that such see-sawing through genres can sound so much like a singular piece of work.” NPR hailed it as “the high mark of a long career” in their “Songs We Love” premiere of the powerful “Sadr City,” a tragic tale about the Siege of Sadr City, the first big flare-up of sectarian violence in Iraq after Mission Accomplished. Rolling Stone Country, who also premiered the Stax Records-steeped album opener “Weight Of The Gun” recently singled out Lund for their “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know.” In Popmatters’ 8/10 review they said,“Melodically engaging and narratively compelling, Things That Can’t Be Undone furthers the case for Corb Lund as one of the best contemporary country songwriters.”
Corb Lund’s Things that Can’t Be Undone was named one of CBC’s Best Canadian Albums of 2015 and topped several year-end lists including The Boot, Boston Globe and Americana Music Show. The song “S Lazy H” brings back heart-wrenching classic storytelling and was included in American Songwriter’s Top 50 Songs of the Year and NPR Music’s Favorite Songs Of 2015
Juno award-winner Corb Lund is supporting his latest New West Records release “Things That Can’t Be Undone” recorded with (current) Grammy nominee for Producer of the Year, Dave Cobb, in Nashville, Tenessee. The tour began in Victoria, BC, this January. He’s touring with his longtime band The Hurtin’ Albertans.
