TRACK LIST REVEALED FOR ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM RUSTIN’ IN THE RAIN, OUT SEPTEMBER 8
August 25, 2023—A new live version of Tyler Childers’ breakthrough current single, “In Your Love,” recorded during his sold-out show at Radio City Music Hall earlier this month, is debuting today. Watch the performance HERE and listen the live audio HERE.
“In Your Love” is the lead single from Childers’ anticipated new album, Rustin’ In The Rain, which will be released September 8 on Hickman Holler Records/RCA Records (pre-order/pre-save). In addition to “In Your Love,” the record features new renditions of Kris Kristofferson’s “Help Me Make It Through the Night” and S.G. Goodman’s “Space and Time” as well as special guest vocals from Goodman, Margo Price and Erin Rae (“Luke 2:8-10”) and Ronnie McCoury, Jason Carter and Alan Bartram of the Travelin’ McCourys (“Percheron Mules”). See below for complete track list.
Since debuting as YouTube’s #1 trending music video last month, “In Your Love” has garnered over 5.5 million video views and 30 million on-demand streams along with widespread critical attention from outlets such as NPR Music, Billboard, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Consequence, The Advocate, OUT, LGBTQ Nation, People, American Songwriter and Rolling Stone, who praises, “the music video of compassion and caring we need right now.” Additionally, USA Today calls the video “a much-needed portrait of inclusivity,” while Paste declares, “Childers is the most essential mainstream country musician working right now.” Watch/share the official music video—written/creative directed by Silas House, and starring Colton Haynes and James Scully—HERE and “The Making of ‘In Your Love’,” a special behind-the-scenes look at the video HERE.
Of the new album, Childers shares, “This is a collection of songs I playfully pieced together as if I was pitching a group of songs to Elvis. Some covers, one co-write, and some I even wrote in my best (terrible) Elvis impersonation, as I worked around the farm and kicked around the house. I hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thank you. Thank you very much.”
Childers and his longtime band, The Food Stamps—James Barker (pedal steel), Craig Burletic (bass), CJ Cain (guitar), Rodney Elkins (drums), Chase Lewis (keyboards) and Jesse Wells (guitar, fiddle)—are currently in the midst of a 30-date sold-out nationwide tour. Upcoming stops include two nights at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre as well as two New Year’s Eve shows at Lexington’s Rupp Arena. See below for complete itinerary.
Rustin’ In The Rain follows last year’s triple album, Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?, which featured eight songs presented in three distinct sonic perspectives—Hallelujah, Jubilee and Joyful Noise. Released to widespread acclaim, Esquire praised, “Who’s doing it better than Childers in roots music these days? No one,” while the Associated Press declared, “fearless exuberance…one of country music’s most compelling and unpredictable artists” and NPR Music asserted, “eight songs so good he had to record them thrice.” Before Hounds, Childers released 2020’s Grammy-nominated surprise album, Long Violent History, which NPR Music called an “explicit and remarkable stand in solidarity.” His two previous releases, 2019’s #1 Country Squire as well 2017’s RIAA Platinum debut, Purgatory, were released to overwhelming critical and commercial acclaim. In the years since his debut, Childers has earned two Grammy nominations and has been featured on “CBS This Morning,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series and “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.”
