Exciting news, western swing lovers! Asleep at the Wheel has flipped Friday the 13th on its head with this good fortune: in two months time Ray and the gang will be tacking on some extra summer heat with their brand new album New Routes. Featuring new material for the first time in over ten years, New Routes marks album number thirty four for The Wheel in their nearly fifty year history, this time around blending originals with covers and maybe even a couple Avett Brothers!
New Routes comes out Friday, September 14th but don’t sleep on the new Wheel! The Wheel takes back the helm on a traditional tune Ray Benson re-arranged as the first of eleven on New Routes, “Jack I’m Mellow”!
