Koe Wetzel is gearing up for a brand new album, and we’re officially getting our first taste of the new project with the lead single, “April Showers.”
Written by Koe alongside Ben Burgess, Jaren Johnston, “April Showers” is the quintessential “goodbye anthem” that slots perfectly into the Koe Wetzel wheelhouse.
He’s been teasing this one for a few weeks now, playing it at the shows on his headlining tour and even posting a few TikToks with shorter clips of the studio version over the past few weekends.
Directed by John Park, the music video gives us a glimpse at Koe’s last day on Earth as a meteor is about to strike… ending it all.
We know Koe has been in the studio at the Sonic Ranch down in Tornillo, Texas working on a new record. He already confirmed not long ago that it was almost done, and he would be dropping a new album sometime this year.
“We’re throwing out all the stops on this record. It’s more alternative, southern rock, heavier rock than what we’re used to. But I wanted this record to be that before I started making my country music.
This record does have some country sounding songs, but overall it’s more of an alternative record.
I just wanted to go in and kinda give everybody somethin’ to chew on before they got the full country record.”
Koe recently launched his North American headlining tour this spring.
Kicking off on March 3rd in Independence, Missouri, the 32-show run will go through July 23 with stops in New York, Tulsa, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, and more.
