It’s a great Friday folks, because Flatland Cavalry has blessed us once again with an absolute banger.

Their new single “Some Things Never Change” was released on all platforms today, and the song resonates everything that is Flatland Cavalry.

The song immediately captivates your attention with that signature Flatland fiddle, we got the banjo goin’ and then Cleto Cordero chimes in with what’s become one of my favorite voices in country music.

The song takes you to a bar, where Cleto sings about seeing one of his old flames walking in and a conversation he has with her. Although he has great memories with her, he knows that the thrill she brings will only last temporarily.

The chorus says it all:

“But the chills and thrills you’ve given me won’t last long
When the lights come up and the smoke clears you’ll be gone
Like a lightning strike sheds light on falling rain
Some things never change.”

And the best part? It’s our first taste of their upcoming album, Welcome To Countryland.

Due out this summer, the 14-song project features guest vocals from Cleto’s wife Kaitlin Butts, as well as the very talented Hailey Whitters. Plus, we have a Luke Combs co-write on there as well as a song co-written by Lainey Wilson.

The band calls it their favorite record they’ve made to date:

“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.

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!”

Welcome To Countryland is set to drop on July 2nd.
