The record is the band’s first since their 2019 album Let It Roll and it’s proven to be well worth the wait. While Midland has already graced us with plenty of great music in their career, they’re emphatic that they “hit a new level of songwriting” on the latest record.

With 12 songs in total, there’s plenty to like on the record, but also plenty of tracks that didn’t make the cut. “We wrote a lot of songs for it too, so this is the distilled best of the best for this album,” the group told Rob + Holly.
“Also there’s a tapestry of bringing the songs together and picking the ones that felt like they were of a similar vibe. Maybe not even necessarily the best song, but the one that fits into this motif.”
