“Last June, I got to write with a couple great songwriters in town, Ashley Monroe and Nick Walsh,” lead vocalist Cleto Cordero says in a statement. “The three of us got along effortlessly—I think our collective experiences with the strenuous journey that is dream-chasing and being highwaymen (and women) lent towards us writing a song that is the antithesis of the hustle and bustle of living the Night Life; a song about the beauty of cherishing the start of a new day, basking in the peace and stillness, with the one you love most.

“The song came to life in the studio, expanding its energy and emotion as the band added their signature touch,” Cordero continues. “It is the great honor and privilege of my life to get to wake up next to my wife, Kaitlin Butts, so including her voice on the song added an element that makes for a truly beautiful and powerful recording. Like the rising sun bursting from the dark horizon, she and our bass player’s wife, Sydney Saenz, crafted a luminous angel choir outro that takes the song to heavenly places and makes for one of my favorite records we’ve ever made.”

Set for release on October 27, Wandering Star is Flatland Cavalry’s first full-length release since inking a deal with Interscope Records. The project follows their acclaimed 2022 EP Songs to Keep You Warm, which features additional collaborations with Butts and Monroe.
