Congratulations to Big Ears alum and longtime Tennessee resident William Tyler, who announced his latest LP, Goes West, on Monday. As you might guess from the title, it’s about William’s choice to leave the South and head toward Los Angeles. It’s a beautiful record about searching for senses of resolve, justice, and identity in the landscape of the United States. You can hear the resplendent first single, “Fail Safe,” now. Look for the new album via Merge on January 25.
