Colter Wall has done it again.

His new studio album Little Songs is out everywhere today, and per the usual with him, perfectly showcases his unique sound and life out on the prairie of his native Canada.

From his deep cutting songwriting, to his very distinct, almost haunting vocals, Colter is truly one of a kind when it comes to country and western music, so I’m always excited when he releases any sort of new tunes.

He’s one of those rare artists who truly never disappoints, singing straight from the heart about his authentic life experiences. As a fan of country music, there’s really not much more you can ask for.

The record features four previously released songs in the title track, “Corralling the Blues,” “For A Long While,” and a cover of Hoyt Axton’s “Evangelina,” all of which are still some of my favorites on the tracklist.

The Saskatchewan native weighed in on the upcoming release, saying he’s been writing these songs over the last few years and they reflect the feeling of home and his life as a cowboy:

“These songs were written over the last three years. I penned most of them from home and I think the songs reflect that.”

This is also the first album he’s released since signing a deal between his current, independent label La Honda and major label RCA Records.

If you’re into real deal country music that doesn’t pull any punches, but certainly packs a helluva punch, this project is for you.

I’ve been a fan of Colter for quite some time now, and this album further proves why he’s one of the premiere artists not only in the independent country scene, but the whole genre.

You can check out some of my early favorites below, starting with the album standout “Honky Tonk Nighthawk”:
