The White Buffalo announces new album On The Widow’s Walk
The White Buffalo, aka singer-songwriter Jake Smith, has announced specifics of his seventh studio album, On The Widow’s Stroll. The successor to 2017’s Darkest Darks, Lightest Lights will be introduced on April 17. Listen to first single The Rapture:
The White Buffalo – The Rapture (Lyric Video)
“It’s a twisted, primitive tale of an unrelenting thirst for blood,” says Smith. “With The Rapture, I preferred to blur the strains between animal and man, to develop a tension of ethical restraint and unbridled evil.”
On The Widow’s Stroll was created by Shooter Jennings, who worked on very last year’s Duff McKagan solo album Tenderness and on Marilyn Manson’s forthcoming album.
“I was floored by Jake’s voice and his lyricism,” says Jennings. “It was daunting. But we had a genuinely superior time igniting our inspirations alongside one another. Jake is one of the greatest out there.
“I’m honoured that I acquired the opportunity to make this file occur to daily life with him and his band. They let me into the fold and we created some high-quality audio together. Extended live the Jelly Crew!”
‘On The Widow’s Walk’ is a compelling, gimmick-free statement from an artist, now based in Southern California, whose activity between the musical lines has seen his star very much on the rise, playing to a million followers worldwide, achieving over 200 million streams to date, and securing a Top 10 spot in the TV / Film Syncs Chart for 2019.
The White Buffalo will be embarking on a European tour to mark the album’s release, see concert dates below.
