The White Buffalo Confirms November Release For Eighth Studio Album 'Year Of The Dark Horse'

Tuesday, 23 August 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

The White Buffalo has announced his eighth studio album.

Singer-songwriter Jake Smith will release 'Year Of The Dark Horse' through Snakefarm Records on November 11. Influenced by the changing seasons paralleled with the shifting of a relationship, the record was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Jay Joyce at Nashville Neon Cross studio. Commenting on it, Smith said:

"You think we're a country band? A folk band? Americana? Rock? What the fuck are you gonna say now?! With this album, I wanted something outside of what I’ve ever done. I wanted to open up. Do something dangerous. I’m hard to put into a singular genre as it is, but now I really wanted to take away any kind of preconception or pigeon-holing."

He added: "And don’t ask me, cos I don't know what it is! It’s a genre-bending thing--there's elements and influences from ELO, Daniel Lanois, Tom Waits, The Boss, circus, pirate music, yacht rock, and I’m driving and pushing some of these numbers in a way I’ve never done before."

Smith, whose last album was 2020's 'On The Widow's Walk', will be accompanied by touring and recording musicians Christopher Hoffee and Matt Lynott for a run of Canadian shows in September, ahead of their first festival appearance of 2022 at Beachlife Festival in Los Angeles, California.
