NEW ALBUM ON THE WIDOW’S WALK – OUT APR 17
‘ON THE WIDOW’S WALK’ EXCLUSIVE LIVE STREAM CONCERT + FAN CHAT SUNDAY APR 5
“ ‘Faster Than Fire’ is a song inspired by the fires of California in the fall of 2018. It’s an unflinching look at the merciless power and speed of Mother Nature and the destruction she brings. How in a moment lives and dreams are changed forever.” – The White Buffalo
Following last week’s release of “Problem Solution” and “Faster Than Fire” as double A-side singles, The White Buffalo (AKA Jake Smith) is releasing the official lyric video for “Faster Than Fire.” Both tracks will be on The White Buffalo’s forthcoming Shooter Jennings produced album On The Widow’s Walk (Spinefarm Records), out April 17.
In light of recent show cancellations, The White Buffalo has partnered with brand new streaming service Cadenza to host a live stream concert this Sunday, April 5th at noon pacific. During the stream, Smith will play old favorites as well as new songs from the forthcoming album. The stream will also include a live fan Q&A session. Fans may purchase a pass to access the stream for $10 at http://cadenza.tv/set/the-white-buffalo.
About The White Buffalo: “At a show in Sacramento, in the space of five minutes, three people came up to me with life-changing stories. They told me how my music had helped them to deal with the loss of people close to them…”
The White Buffalo is about engagement. The White Buffalo makes people laugh and cry. The White Buffalo is truth and wild imagination working together.
The White Buffalo is Jake Smith – singer, songwriter, guitarist, teller of stories, Emmy nominee; an artist whose voice – a timber-shakin’ baritone of gravitas and gravel – seems directly linked to a greater truth; an artist who will not be swayed by fashion or curtailed by genre.
Of the six studio albums and three EPs thus far released under The White Buffalo banner, this latest 11-track outing is the most collaborative and organic, the most sonically round. It’s also the first for Snakefarm Records, a young label within the Universal Music Group focussing on music that’s roots-driven and real.
On The Widow’s Walk is a bold and compelling statement from a unique talent; an artist whose instinct for working between the musical lines has seen his star very much on the rise, playing to a million followers worldwide and securing a Top 10 spot in the TV / Film Syncs Chart for 2019, with ‘The Woods’ (featured in TV show ‘The Punisher’) also figuring in the Top 10.
With uncontrived, hand-crafted music now receiving increased levels of attention, music straight from the source, the timing is perfect for this powerful, provoking new album and a fresh turn of the page.
