Corb Lund has released the second song from his forthcoming album Agricultural Tragic, Lund’s first album of original material in five years.  The new track, “Old Men,” celebrates those that have taken the time to perfect their craft.  Click here to hear “Old Men” now. Agricultural Tragic is due out on April 24. Click here to view the album trailer. The song follows on the heels of critical favourite “90 Seconds of Your Time”.

Of “Old Men” Lund notes, “’Old Men’ is about appreciating wisdom and ability in a world increasingly obsessed with immediacy. I love old stuff; old books, old guitars, old records, old guns, old saddles and old people. And I really like folks that have spent a lifetime perfecting the things that they’re good at. Especially the folks that make whiskey.” 

Lund has previously announced a 25-date Canadian tour, set to begin April 27 in Victoria, BC. A full list of dates can be found below. The show will be bigger and better than ever, with newly added production elements, as well as VIP packages including a meet and greet and acoustic performance, available at  Before the tour begins, Lund will make his debut at the historic Grand Ole Opry on April 18th

Corb Lund has received multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nominations and wins.  His seventh album, Cabin Fever, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Charts in 2012; three of his records have been certified Gold, and his 2015  studio album, Things That Can’t Be Undone, cemented his status as one of the best contemporary country singer/songwriters working today.  Last September, Corb released Cover Your Tracks, an 8-song collection of unexpected cover songs previously recorded by AC/DC, Nancy Sinatra, Billy Joel, Marty Robbins, Bob Dylan, The Eagles, Willie Nelson & Ray Charles, and Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show.  

A rural Albertan hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is about as authentic as they come. Before his current bandleader incarnation with the Hurtin’ Albertans, Lund was an integral part of the smalls, a legendary Canadian indie rock band who didn’t quite fit into any single category, either, mixing punk, speed metal, jazz and — indeed — country. Embracing both his Western heritage and his indie-rock past through his music, Lund has been known to filter a range of cowboy themes past and present through his unique lens – from rough-and-tumble tales of lawless frontier saloons to the sombre realities of running a modern family ranch.

Of the new music, Lund says “There are people who do Western music and they kind of freeze-dry it, like museum style. I don’t do that at all. I’m interested in expressing myself currently. Which is actually what it feels like to have six generations of cowboy heritage thrown into the crazy 21st Century urban setting,” he explains. “I love the traditional style and I use it. But I approach it with abandon and irreverence.”
