MIDLAND, The Grammy-nominated country trio that has helped bring steel guitar and high-lonesome harmonies back to the airwaves with hits like “Drinkin’ Problem” and “Burn Out,” return with the first single off their highly-anticipated upcoming second album. Listen to “Mr, Lonely” Here: https://midland.lnk.to/MrLonelyPR
“Mr. Lonely” opens with a Dwight Yoakam-inspired guitar lick and builds on the classic-country vibe that helped make the Texas group’s 2017 debut album ON THE ROCKS such a favourite among fans and critics alike. Written by Midland — singer Mark Wystrach, guitarist Jess Carson and bassist Cameron Duddy — with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, and produced by McAnally, Osborne and Dann Huff, “Mr. Lonely” is fleshed out by Carson on acoustic guitar, Duddy on bass and the band’s touring lead guitarist Luke Cutchen on electric. Pedal-steel great Paul Franklin also contributes a slippery steel solo, with Wystrach cheering him on.
Following their completely sold-out, debut headline tour of the UK in December 2018, which established them as one of the most exciting bands on the country scene today, Midland have announced a very welcome return for headline shows in December 2019:
Dec 2 / Ulster Hall / Belfast
Dec 3 / O2 Academy / Glasgow
Dec 4 / O2 Ritz / Manchester
Dec 5 / O2 Institute / Birmingham
Dec 7 / Leadmill / Sheffield
Dec 8 / Roundhouse / London
Special guest on the live dates will be Desure.
