Cass Mccombs Announces New Single 'Big Wheel' [Listen]

This year has seen legendary US singer-songwriter Cass Mccombs release his most encompassing statement to date with critically acclaimed double album Big Wheel and Others.
 
Following the breezy 'There Can Be Only One' and the late Karen Black-featuring 'Brighter!', comes new, half-title track single 'Big Wheel'. A rollicking album opener of muscular country rock that confronts questions of masculinity and Western mythology with Cass' irreverent insight and wit, it's as a compelling opening statement for an endlessly rich album characterized by a loving correspondence with Americana songwriting traditions, the great outdoors and life on the road.
UK fans will be able to catch the Cass McCombs' singular magic in performance when he plays a handful of exclusive dates in January.
 
Cass McCombs tour dates:

08.01 - Colston Hall, Bristol
09.01 - CCA, Glasgow
10.01 - Deaf Institute, Manchester
11.01 - Workmans Club, Dublin
13.01 - Queen Elizabeth Hall, London
 
The twenty-two song long 'Big Wheel and Others' is a marauding marvel of great beauty, insight, humour and mystery that sees McCombs at the peak of his mercurial powers - his restless muse making stops at all the strangest, most singular roadsides of rock and roll, blues, jazz, country and more on its nomadic quest for human truth and understanding. In equal parts bucolically gorgeous and thrillingly roughshod, mischievously obtuse and devastatingly direct, painfully personal and cosmically universal, 'Big Wheel...' is the perfect distillation of over a decade's worth of creation and chaos in the life of a true pillar of the American underground.
