Country-Americana up-and-comer, Tommy Prine, has announced his debut album, This Far South.
The new record is set to be released on June 23, with the title-track being made available immediately.
Having recently returned stateside after supporting Tyler Childers on the hugely popular UK leg of his Send in the Hounds tour, there's a burgeoning buzz surrounding Prine and his warm, sparse sound.
The lead single from This Far South is now available to listen to on all platforms, and showcases Prine's penchant for unassuming yet captivating melodies, which gradually build in intensity throughout the song.
Crafted alongside his long-time songwriting buddies, Ruston Kelly and Gena Johnson, fans of Prine have been clamouring for his debut album since they first heard ‘Ships in the Harbor’ in September.
Speaking ahead of the album announcement, Prine outlined the inspiration behind the title, “I found my rock bottom and tried to escape it several times, ultimately finding the courage to see it through to the other side.
There were several years where I felt without purpose…spent all my time partying and just existing. I found myself at a fork in the road and chose the better path, and in that moment, I swore I would never be ‘this far south’ again”.
As the son of lyrical legend, John Prine, there is a heightened sense of expectation and anticipation surrounding the rising star.
This has been further amplified by a recent shout-out from Luke Combs, who revealed that ‘Ships in the Habor’ is one of his favourite songs at the moment.
Now that This Far South's title-track has been released, Tommy Prine's quickly growing fanbase will be hoping it won't be long before they get another taste of the new project.
