The release date of Bill Callahan‘s new record is inching closer, and today we get to hear another song from it. This one’s titled ‘Cowboy’ and it arrives with a tongue-in-cheek, cowboy-themed ‘commercial’ in promotion of Gold Record. Check it out below.
“Shades of old Mexico are implied musically, as Bill verbally implies that the only new cowboys anymore are the ones watching old cowboys on the late, late show,” reads a statement about the track. “Trumpet obbligato flies across the border – mariachi at times, cavalry-bugle at others – as pitch-perfect showbiz whistles floats in the Hollywood sunset backing this slow-dying dream.”
Gold Record is out September 4 via Drag City. Previously, the singer-songwriter unveiled the tracks ’35’, ‘Pigeons’, ‘Another Song’, ‘Protest Song’, ‘The Mackenzies’, and ‘Breakfast’.
