Acclaimed singer-songwriter Kelsey Waldon has announced plans to release a new LP, White Noise/White Lines, through John Prine’s label Oh Boy Records on October 4th. She also released the album’s first single, “Anyhow,” and its accompanying video.
“Anyhow” pairs intimate lyrics from the Monkey’s Eyebrow, KY native’s life with a rough-hewn, honky-tonk country arrangement and Waldon’s conversational vocal style.
Waldon will continue to play with John Prine during her upcoming tour, which commenced on July 9. “To have someone like John, who I have looked up to my whole life, who I have set my songwriting standards after and my general music-making standards after, to have someone like him endorse my music and care enough about it to make sure it reaches a wider audience… That means everything,” Walden said in a statement.
