Corb Lund is gearing up to release Cover Your Tracks on September 13, 2019, via Warner Music Canada. The new eight-song EP will be a collection of unexpected cover songs and is now available for Pre-Order. The new EP will feature Lund’s take on classic tunes previously recorded by AC/DC, Nancy Sinatra, Billy Joel, Marty Robbins, Bob Dylan, The Eagles, Willie Nelson & Ray Charles, and Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show. Cover Your Tracks features guest appearances from singer/songwriter Hayes Carll and Canadian music legend Ian Tyson alongside Lund’s band The Hurtin Albertans: Kurt Ciesla, Grant Siemens, and Brady Valgardson.
“Earlier this year I recorded a bunch of cover songs by some of my favourite artists and writers from various periods in my life, mostly for fun and to get them out of my system.” Lund says, “Many of the songs we’ve been playing live for years. Being re-inspired by this stuff and getting back in the studio to cut it was a great warm up for making another record of my own songs, which I’m working hard on writing as we speak. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy listening to these old favourites as much as we enjoyed recording them.”
Lund has already released the first track off of the EP, “The Cover of the Rolling Stone.” Lund’s interpretation of the Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show classic is turned into a duet with Hayes Carll. “I’ve been playing this in bars for years because it’s always made a great honky-tonk tune. And the subject matter all feels kinda familiar. Thanks to brother Hayes for jumping in.” tells Lund.
Lund has received multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nominations and wins throughout his career. Cover Your Tracks will be available in both physical and digital versions and will be available through all major music retailers. Lund is entering the studio this summer to record his forthcoming full-length record featuring the singer’s signature brand of “agriculturally tragic” wit and Western themes. The album will be released in 2020.

Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
