With just weeks to go until they release their new album, Los Angeles trio LANY has shared one more new song.
Today, they released their new track "cowboy in LA," a tender new cut which finds singer Paul Klein sharing his feelings for an unnamed lady. "When you’re with me / it’s better than Malibu," he declares in the first verse.
The new song is the latest preview of LANY's upcoming third full-length mama's boy, which is said to find the trio reconnecting with their very non-L.A. roots. It's out Oct. 2 on Interscope Records.
As we previously mentioned, after wrapping their last tour in support of 2018's Malibu Nights, Klein temporarily relocated to a studio in the country outside Nashville alongside bandmates Jake Goss and Les Priest. During that time, Klein says he put into words the cognitive dissonance between his adopted L.A. persona and his Oklahoma heritage.
"Someone asked me where I was from and somewhere, out of my spirit, I just said, 'Man, I’m from Oklahoma!'" he says. "It was a weird sense of pride, to be from the middle of nowhere."
That realization inspired a lot of the upcoming record, which is a tribute to the heartland and home, with hues of Americana, with songwriting contributions from Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay, Kacey Musgraves collaborator Shane McAnally, Adele cowriter Dan Wilson and songwriters Sasha Sloan and King Henry.
