Charley Crockett announces new album ‘Lonesome As A Shadow’

Charley Crockett’s anticipated new full-length album, Lonesome As A Shadow, will be released April 20 and is now available for pre-order [insert link]. In advance of the release, the album’s first single, “I Wanna Cry,” is available to stream now:

Of the backstory behind the song, Crockett shares, “When my older sister passed away, I remember driving to the levy and seeing these five white cranes flying overhead. It was right at dusk and the city skyline matched the color of the sunset. It stayed with me and I turned it into a Texas Cajun song to honor my sister’s life.”

Produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Zac Brown) and recorded at Sam Phillip’s Recording in Memphis, TN, Lonesome As A Shadow is Crockett’s fourth full-length album and his first release consisting entirely of original songs. In addition to Crockett on vocals and guitar, the album features his longtime touring band, “The Blue Drifters.”

In celebration of the release, Crockett will tour extensively throughout 2018 including headline shows at Dallas’ Majestic Theater, New Braunfels’ Gruene Hall, Austin’s Stubbs, Nashville’s Mercy Lounge and New York’s Mercury Lounge as well as dates supporting JD McPhearson, Turnpike Troubadours, Shovels and Rope and Old 97’s.
