New album Lonesome Stretch Of Highway out May 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Dec. 18, 2019
EDMONTON, AB — Edmonton-based Royalty Records is proud to announce the signing of legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Mike Plume. The label will release Plume’s new album Lonesome Stretch Of Highway in May 2020, with the singles “Younger Than We Are Today” and “I’m Your Huckleberry” released to radio and digital service providers in February 2020.
Lonesome Stretch Of Highway finds Plume reborn in many ways. Its nine tracks bear his distinctive mark, but with an added crackling energy that’s a byproduct of hard-won experience. Recorded in his adopted hometown of Edmonton, the album marks Plume’s third collaboration with producer Marek David, and the first time they’ve worked together since 2001’s Fools For The Radio.
Royalty Records president Rob Smith says, “I have been a fan of Mike as a writer, artist and performer for a long time. I am proud to have him working with Royalty and even more proud to say that, I believe we’re releasing the best work of his career to date.”
Having first arrived on the scene in the midst of the alt-country insurgency of the early 1990s, Mike Plume and his loyal band have logged countless miles around the globe, touring with the likes of Steve Earle, The Mavericks, John Hiatt and others, while befriending legends such as Levon Helm and Stompin’ Tom Connors. The lessons he’s learned along the way have left an indelible mark on Lonesome Stretch Of Highway, with songs such as “Younger Than We Are Today,” “I’m Your Huckleberry,” “It’s A Long Way” (featuring The Road Hammers), and “Perfume And Gasoline” destined to take a place among his best-loved tunes.
Plume has long been known for his richly detailed storytelling style and unyielding devotion to rock and roll’s original spirit. That’s all present on Lonesome Stretch Of Highway, powered by Plume’s earthy, uncompromising voice. That combination is proof that one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters remains at the top of his game and is ready to hit that highway again.
