I can’t wait for this new Tyler Childers album, Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?
We’re only 11 days away from the album’s release, and from what we’ve seen so far with Childers’ lead single “Angel Band,” the project is gonna be split up into three parts, Hallelujah, Jubilee, and Joyful Noise, which will feature different versions of the same songs.
It’s easy to see that the project is gonna be heavily southern Gospel influenced, featuring songs like Hank Williams’ “Old Country Church,” the title track, “Way Of The Triune God,” and “Purgatory” the title track from his smash hit 2017 album.
But speaking of “Angel Band,” most of us have seen the wild music video for the Jubilee version.
And if ya haven’t you need to do yourself a favor and watch it now, because it’s a wild ride about ol’ boy from the “All Your’n” and “Housefire” music videos, following his drunken and psychedelic stupor and getting picked up by Childers and the boys, where he goes with them to help finish building a barn.
However, shit hits the fan when he’s kicked in the face by a horse, and he’s sent to a religiously diverse version of Heaven, and everything is perfect. He even gets to meet Basil Watkins, the legendary picker we heard about in the trailer for the music video.
Unfortunately, he gets revived by medics on Earth.
With that being said, Childers released the director’s cut version of the video today, and it features the intro that we saw in the trailer, along with him speaking to Basil’s cousin about getting to play Basil’s guitar.
