Multi-talented artist Gill Landry has seemingly been on the road since he first started playing music. Cutting his teeth gigging and busking all over the world, Landry would eventually find elevated notoriety as a member of Old Crow Medicine show.
Landry would then sign on with ATO Records to release an acclaimed self-titled solo album, his third, and toured with luminaries like Ben Harper, Laura Marling, Brandi Carlile, Justin Townes Earle, Warren Haynes, Bruce Hornsby, The Wood Brothers, and more.
Now, Landry is back with a new album, Love Rides A Dark Horse, out October 6th teaming with ATO once again. The LP was announced along with the reveal of single “Berlin,” a duet with First Aid Kit’s Klara Soderberg set over driving acoustic strums and a nostalgia-stoking lap steel guitar.
“Is it true to life or is the meaning we draw from our past just based on sentimental, wounded narratives we tell ourselves to just keep going? It often seems so. Mending the fragile ego ship. Why not sink it? That’s roughly themed in various ways through the album, including the song at hand, ‘Berlin.’
Stories. When life becomes more like theater built on narratives that have become useless to us. I’ve been trying to identify and slaughter the mazes of problems I’ve created through life from being trapped in dead narratives that I created from half truths and various invasive social bias. Fictions that I’ve been using to mend the wounded ego in search of the ‘sanity’ required to get on in this beautiful madhouse. In a few words, ‘just let it go’ I chose old footage for the video to depersonalize the lyrics a bit in hopes of painting a larger scene related to the question regarding all of our interpersonal relationships.”
