Colter Wall’s “For A Long While” Uncovers The Beauty In Rural Life

Colter Wall has released new single “For A Long While” laying out the positive aspects of rural life, balancing his previous release “Corralling The Blues”, which shows the darker side of things.

“For A Long While” is the latest to be released from Wall’s upcoming album, Little Songs, out July 14th, 2023, via Wall’s longtime label La Honda Records and new partner RCA Records. The ten-song LP features eight originals inspired by, and written in, Wall’s home of Battle Creek, Saskatchewan, along with a Hoyt Axton song, “Evangelina,” and a cover of Ian Tyson’s “The Coyote & The Cowboy.” 

Wall is set to make his first of two live appearances this weekend at Denver’s Dusty Boots Festival before heading up to Montana’s Under The Big Sky on July 14th, 2023.

To create Little Songs, Wall returned to Yellowdog Studios in Wimberly, Texas, with his long time touring band. This was also where he cut his 2020 album Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs. The new album was co-Produced by Patrick Lyons. Little Songs sets out to be “an upbeat, sometimes somber glimpse into the rural work and social life of the Canadian West,” and takes more “emotional turns” than his previous albums.
