Grammy-nominated acclaimed singer/songwriter Kim Richey has shared a new track from her forthcoming album Edgeland, released 30th March on Yep Roc Records.

“Chase Wild Horses” is the new single, in which Richey explains “I wrote [Chase Wild Horses] with one of my most favorite people – Mike Henderson. You might recognize his name from the beginnings of The Steeldrivers when Chris Stapleton was singing in the band. He and Chris teamed up on a bunch of songs on Chris’ latest record. I’m proud to know this fellow and to get to make up songs with him.”  

Earlier this year, Richey shared the first single, “Whistle On Occasion” featuring Chuck Prophet and described it as “a poetic and tender tune speaking of life’s simple pleasures.”
Recorded in Nashville, Edgeland is Richey’s eighth studio album was produced by Brad Jones (Over the Rhine, Hayes Carll, Josh Rouse). A who’s who of Nashville players joined Richey in the studio, including Dan Dugmore (multi-instrumentalist); Jerry Roe (drums); Pat Sansone (multi-instrumentalist); Doug Lancio (multi-instrumentalist); Dan Cohen (multi-instrumentalist); Chris Carmichael (string arranger); and Robyn Hitchcock (guitar).

The follow up to 2013’s Thorn In My Heart, the album offers 12 original compositions and features songwriting collaborations with Maendo Sanz, Mike Henderson, Bill Deasy, Al Anderson, Jenny Queen, Harry Hoke, Chuck Prophet and Pat McLaughlin, with the latter two also playing guitar and mandolin, respectively, on the album.
