As we are gearing up for the Super Bowl of New Music Fridays this week with Turnpike Troubadours, Zach Bryan and Morgan Wade all dropping new albums, Tyler Childers decided to remind people that he will also drop jaws with his new album.
I can’t lie: I nearly jumped out of my desk chair with excitement, seeing that his cover of S.G. Goodman’s “Space And Time” and “Percheron Mules” made the cut. The title track for the album “Rustin’ In The Rain” is also one that Childers performed back in 2022 during the Healing Appalachia Benefit concert.
Childers kept the tracklist short and sweet, announcing the seven songs that made the cut on the story for Spotify’s “Indigo” playlist.
We all have been loving the first single, “In Your Love,” but unfortunately, nothing else will be new to the diehard Tyler Childers fans. The title track, along with “Phone Calls & Emails,” and “Luke 2:8-10,”have all been performed live a number of times in the past couple years.
The background of the story highlights one of the album cover alternatives of Childers’ caressing a mule’s head. We should have known from the choice of the album cover that “Percheron Mules” was a contender for the album.
We have only two short weeks till we get to enjoy Rustin’ In The Rain on September 8th in full.
