Following on from the release of the evocative 'Big Sky' and his inclusion on our Ones To Watch For 2019, we can now bring you the news that the mysterious masked songwriter Orville Peck will be releasing his debut album Pony on March 22nd through Sub Pop.

Along with the news he has shared the opening track from the album, 'Dead of Night', a song which again immediately draws to mind the expansive American plains. This time Peck is wrapt with a partner who insists on riding in the dead of night with a strange look in their eye - and Peck seems game to go with them through lost towns and amidst curious onlookers, following his heart. Ever descriptive in his lyricism, Peck's visions are brought into being by his expansive guitar work, coupling with his wild-west vocals which could stretch the breadth of the outback in pitch-perfect beauty.

In the video for 'Dead of Night', created by Michael Maxxis, we follow Orville and his rag tag group (featuring a washed up gambler, a Cubano boxer, a Senegalese cowgirl, and a Wild West club kid) around Nevada's legendary Chicken Ranch brothel, featuring many of the establishment's real-life employees. Check out 'Dead of Night' below.
