Corb Lund Releases Acoustic Video for ‘Old Familiar Drunken Feeling’ Ahead of UK/Ireland Tour in June

Ahead of his return to the UK/Ireland in June, Corb Lund has shared an acoustic video of ‘Old Familiar Drunken Feeling‘ – available to view here. The track closes Lund’s latest album El Viejo released in February, via New West Records, and which was deemed the ‘Americana Album of the Month’ by Uncut magazine.

Commenting on the ‘Old Familiar Drunken Feeling’, Lund shared, “It’s about taking a gummy bear, a THC gummy bear, when it first got legalized in Colorado, having to play a show that night. It was terrifying. If you’re not a pot guy, it can be pretty disconcerting and your brain starts getting away on you and you have a bunch of weird paranoid thoughts.”

El Viejo was produced by Lund and recorded entirely in his living room in Lethbridge, AB with his band The Hurtin’ Albertans. El Viejo is Lund’s first album of original material since 2020’s critically acclaimed Agricultural Tragic, which was named an album of the year by the readers of No Depression. Gathering around his living room, Lund & Co. tapped into his most cherished musical influences of acoustic tone and lyrical aptitude — Marty Robbins, Kris Kristofferson, Bobbie Gentry, Jerry Reed. There is a common theme — possibly even a character thread — of the gambler, the outlaw who roams from place-to-place with no direction home.

El Viejo pays tribute to Lund’s late friend and mentor, the famed Canadian singer-songwriter Ian Tyson, who passed away 29 December, 2022. With the album, he has also created an ode to the notion of stripping everything down and letting the tape roll — simply capturing a moment of pure vulnerability and organic inspiration in real time.

Lund will begin his UK/European tour with two headline shows in the Netherlands on May 28th and 29th. He will then support The Dead South on their European tour, and close out his run with headline shows in London, Manchester, Birkenhead, Dublin and Kilkenny.

Commenting on his return to Europe and the UK, Lund shared, “I’m really looking forward to touring Europe with The Dead South in June. We had a blast with those guys in the States this year, they took great care of us and their audiences are bananas! I’m especially excited for Eastern Europe. I haven’t played there since my metal days with my old band, ‘the smalls’ and I’m really interested in checking out how much it has changed. The Dead South have us with them in Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Berlin, Leipzig, Paris, and a whole string of others.”

Much like his music, Lund is decidedly hard to define. The western Canadian singer-songwriter is an elusive artist — onstage, offstage, and in the studio — seamlessly weaving between the outlaw country, Western, and indie-folk realms with an honest curiosity and rowdy devotion to each. He was raised with the tried and true DIY sentiment of “if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself” launching his career recording in his basement, printing his own shirts, booking his own tours, being his own manager and publicist… whatever it took to get it done. He toured for years with the indie-metal band the smalls, and later turned his sights to writing Western songs, creating a unique and quirky hybrid writing style along the way. He has received multiple CCMA, JUNO, and international award nominations and wins. In 2022, Lund won his 14th career Canadian Country Music Award and made his debut at the historic Grand Ole Opry earlier this year as well. A rural Albertan hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is about as authentic as they come.
