At long last, it's happening.

Oklahoma's celebrated country-rock group, the Turnpike Troubadours, have emerged from their deafening six-year silence to announce a brand new album, A Cat in the Rain, produced by Shooter Jennings.

The record is lined up for an August 25th release, with the lead single, ‘Mean Old Sun’, having been made available immediately. It's a moody, charismatic offering that has immediately reignited fans’ excitement ahead of the hotly anticipated new project.

Along with the title-track and ‘Mean Old Sun’, both of which have been teased during recent live shows, the Turnpike Troubadours’ new album will feature previously unheard songs such as ‘Black Sky’, ‘East Side Love Song (Bottoms Up)’, ‘Lucille’ and ‘Three More Days’.

A Cat in the Rain is being accompanied by a nationwide 2023 tour, which kicks off at Oregon's FairWell Festival on July 21. Attendees will be hoping to hear a range of tracks from the new album as the much-loved band take their expansive arsenal of fan-favourites across the US.

The Turnpike Troubadours have amassed a fiercely loyal following since their debut release, Diamonds & Gasoline, in 2010, with the red-dirt group having inspired a number of today's country pioneers.

For instance, fellow Oklahoman, Zach Bryan, counts himself as one of the Turnpike Troubadours’ many disciples, with the ‘Something in the Orange’ hitmaker famously remarking that he'd been kicked out of four Turnpike shows before he turned 17.

The revelation that we'd be getting a new record from the hugely influential six-piece has reverberated around the country music world, with many fearing that the Turnpike Troubadours’ ‘indefinite’ hiatus in 2019 would turn out to be permanent.

Thankfully, that hasn't been the case, and we're now keenly counting down the days until August 25th.
