Could Tyler Childers be on the cusp of a new era of music?
Fans of the ‘Lady May’ hitmaker certainly seem to think so, after Tyler shared a cryptic video clip across his socials. The snippet appears to have been taken from an upcoming music video, and finds the singer-songwriter examining what appears to be a plough, in front of a hazy, dream-like artificial farm backdrop.
Some suspect this is a clip from Tyler Childers’ music video for ‘I'll Wait For You’, an unreleased track he teased during his captivating headlining set at Bonnaroo 2023 in June.
The Kentucky maverick doesn't tend to release the odd single or video here and there - when Tyler Childers is in new music mode, he usually has a full album up his sleeve.
Adding to the hype is the fact that he's changed his profile picture across all his social media platforms. As someone who is not typically too active on his socials, this move seemingly signifies the ushering in of a new single - or possibly album - rollout.
If Tyler Childers is readying a new record, it'll be the alt-country songsmith's first project since he dropped the acclaimed, gospel-inspired Can I Take My Hounds To Heaven? in September 2022.
The sprawling triple-album explored an eclectic mix of new sounds and stylistic influences, with Tyler Childers being renowned for his refusal to shy away from boundary-pushing experimentation.
The unpredictability of Tyler's release schedules and the sonic recipe he chooses to dip into ensures the sense of anticipation ahead of his next album is sky-high, with fans keenly awaiting more news as to what this teaser video snippet has been taken from.
