Signaling a brand new album on the horizon, Cory Wong has dropped a brand new single “Bluebird” featuring Punch Brothers mandolinist Chris Thile.
Previously, Thile jammed with Wong at Vulfpeck’s sold-out debut at Madison Square Garden.
Looking ahead, the new LP – Trail Songs – will drop on Aug. 8 and according to Wong, it’s a far different vibe from his prior, dance-laden releases.
“The music I wrote for this album is nothing like the music I’ve put out before. It’s reflective and contemplative,” explains wong via press release. “It’s all acoustic music, recorded on acoustic instruments. I started by writing tunes on the guitar, and then added layers while mocking up demos. And then I sent the demos and scores out to my friends to replace the demo parts. It was really a magical thing to be able to bring some of my friends together to play music from around the world in a time where many of them felt isolated from any sense of community.”
