On March 29, acclaimed singer-songwriter Charley Crockett will release a 7″ featuring two new songs: “River Of Sorrow” and “How Low Can You Go.” Crockett is releasing the 7″, which is available digitally now, as part of Bruce Robison’s “The Next Waltz” project.

In tandem with the tracks’ release, Crockett has shared a music video for “River Of Sorrow.” Bobby Cochran directed the clip, which finds Crockett exploring an old sheep farm on a particularly foggy day.

“‘River Of Sorrow’ is a song about looking for redemption in a life full of sin,” Crockett says. “Maybe the oldest kind of song in the book… There’s a river in the middle of that valley and when I look at the video now, it’s as if the old me disappeared into that pasture and a new man came back out. That’s the song. A ‘River Of Sorrow’ washed away my sins.”

Crockett released two albums in 2018, Lonesome As A Shadow and Lil G.L.’s Blue Bonanza. He underwent open heart surgery in January and subsequently took a break from touring, which he’ll resume in earnest in early April.
