Genre-Bending Duo The War and Treaty Announce New Album LOVER’S GAME

The genre-bending duo The War and Treaty announced a new album today. LOVER’S GAME is set to release March 10 on Mercury Nashville. The 10-song record is the duo’s first major-label release.

Husband and wife Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter founded The War and Treaty in 2014, and have since been recognized by the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Americana Music Association as “2022 Duo/Group of the Year.”

The couple’s previous release BLANK PAGE EP gives listeners a preview to their new album’s sound with songs like “Lover’s Game,” showcasing a rock ’n’ blues sound and passionate vocals, along with “Blank Page”—displaying their unique mix of soul, country and folk in a beautifully slow ballad.

LOVER’S GAME offers an insightful perspective on a long-lasting relationship. It speaks of everlasting and ever-growing love between two people.

In a statement, Tanya Trotter says, “There is no greater or higher calling in life than to be conduits of love and that’s exactly what LOVER’S GAME is to us. Love is the intention and love is the subject that can’t be ignored. We’ve been through every facet of it together and we could not be more excited to share another layer of our story.”
