Song Premiere: Cowboy Junkies - "Sing In My Meadow"
If you haven’t been keeping up with the Cowboy Junkies lately, you’ve missed quite a bit. Their third album in a series of four, known as The Nomad Series, will be released Oct. 18, which keeps the band on track to have all four albums released within an 18-month period. Sing In My Meadow is a collection of songs recorded over a four-day period that the band’s Michael Timmins describes as “an album that references an aspect of our live performances that we don’t dig into very much in our studio recordings. We wanted the album to revolve around those psychedelic, blues-inspired forays we are so fond of exploring on stage.”
Timmins sums up the band’s motivation for taking on such a massive project quite simply. “The main reason for wanting to do it,” he says, “is that, as we steam through our twenty-fifth year, we feel that we have the energy and inspiration to pull it off!”
