MIDLAND'S NEW ALBUM 2024

Expected Release Date: April-May 2024

Expected Title: Up In Texas

Expected Tracklist*:

  • Up In Texas

*Confirmed to be eight songs long

Midland aren't known for being too liberal with their unreleased teasers and social media snippets, but thankfully, the band's front-man, Mark Wystrach, has taken to socials to confirm their new album will be arriving between April and March 2024.

On the trio's Instagram video of a recent performance, a follower commented, “Time for a new album boyz”, before Mark tantalisingly responded, “It's done and ready - April - May...”

The only single released from the upcoming record so far is ‘Up In Texas’, a neo-traditional twanger in the form of smooth, swaggering Midland fan-favourites such as ‘Drinkin’ Problem’, ‘Adios Cowboy’ and ‘Sunrise Tells The Story’.

‘Up In Texas’ arose from a co-write between band-members Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson, as well as a couple of Music City maestros, Josh Osborne and Bryan Simpson.

The Texas band's previous album, 2022's The Last Resort: Greetings From, was primarily set against the backdrop of a broken-down Floridian motel, which mirrored the protagonist's heartbreak as he desperately sought a coastal escape from his troubles.

It's unclear whether Midland's 2024 project will be another concept album, but band-member Cameron Duddy did reveal some fascinating details about the record in a recent interview.

Duddy shared with Texas Music Magazine, “I can kind of give you a soft update on it. We’re looking to release - hopefully - around May. It’s an eight track album that we recorded with Dave Cobb in Savannah, Georgia over a two week stint in early December”.

He explained, “It’s the first time we’ve worked with Dave - and really the first time that we, since our first record, have lived in a studio and recorded that way. And man, it’s just mind blowing the results that we got when going back to that way of recording”.

As for the title of the hotly anticipated album, Cameron Duddy hinted that they have one in mind, but otherwise remained tight-lipped, “We’re circling one particular album name, but I would probably get my head chopped off if I told you it now”, before teasing, “But what I can say is that this is the most poignant thing that we’ve ever recorded, and really a level up in terms of songwriting and musicianship”.

Judging by Mark's Instagram comment - which came a couple of weeks after Cameron's interview - the new album's release date may have been brought forward into April.

With the much-loved group's Up In Texas tour kicking off on April 12 - a Friday - it seems Midland could be eyeing up that day as a potential release date for the record.
