“Big Horn Sections, Swirling String Arrangements And Glittering Choruses” – Hear New Cale Tyson Album Via Noisey
July 12, 2017 - Cale Tyson will release his full-length debut album Careless Soul this Friday, and you can hear the whole thing now via Noisey. They say “on Careless Soul, Tyson still hangs onto the country sound he gained notoriety with, but he incorporates more of the countrypolitan sounds of the seventies—think George Jones or Dolly Parton—with big horn sections, swirling string arrangements and glittering choruses.”
Recorded in Muscle Shoals, the album features contributions from the Watson Twins, Caitlin Rose, Steelism guitarist Jeremy Fetzer, longtime Swampers bassist David Hood, and producer Michael Rinne, who doubles as the bass player for Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell.
Rolling Stone says Cale "asks for a little levity in his breed of country music: artists shouldn't be confined to only traditional references when working outside of the mainstream, because even Merle Haggard had plenty of brass." NPR Music, who note he’s “made a mark on Nashville's youthful indie country scene over the last half-decade,” spoke to Cale about the new album and how he went from sreamo bands in his hometown of Fort Worth, TX, to a country traditionalist sound on his early EP’s in Nashville, to Careless Soul, an album that “points toward new stylistic and songwriting possibilities.”
The Nashville Scene points out that “as much as he loves country songs, he's exploring the strength of that voice in other contexts. His forthcoming LP Careless Soul, out July 14, shows the beginning of that process…the record does a sophisticated dance between country and soul.” In a feature in the July/August print edition, American Songwriter say Careless Soul is "a remarkably impressive debut."
Cale announced a string of dates today, with more on the way. Currently confirmed dates can be found here.
