May 17, 2023—GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter and musician Gregory Alan Isakov will release his anticipated new album, Appaloosa Bones, August 18 via Dualtone Records and Isakov’s own label, Suitcase Town Music (pre-order/pre-save here). Ahead of the release, new song, “The Fall,” is debuting today. Watch/share the official music video—directed by Jasmine McGlade (Director, Fencer and Executive Producer, LA LA Land) and animated by Ruth Lingford (Head of Animation, Harvard University)—HERE.

Of the video, McGlade shares, “Gregory’s music is so poignant, and ‘The Fall’ in particular has such a powerful, spiritual quality to it. I knew I wanted to make a video immersed in nature that fit with Greg’s aesthetic and the emotional realm of the song, while also creating characters and vintage, old-timey elements that connect with the lyrics. The piece, perhaps like the song, should ultimately say something about the human condition, and what it means to be alive—in a way that is a bit surrealist.”

Produced by Isakov and Andrew Berlin (Descendents, Rise Against) and recorded at Isakov’s studio outside of Boulder, Appaloosa Bones is his first new album in five years and is filled with his signature “emotionally evocative songwriting style” (NPR Music). With these eleven tracks, Isakov creates an atmospheric collection, infusing lush harmonies with layered instrumental textures of guitars, banjos and piano, many of which Isakov played himself.

Reflecting on the album, Isakov shares, “I set out to make a folky, small lo-fi rock ‘n’ roll record. And then the songs kind of told me, ‘No, this is what it’s going to be.’ And so I said, ‘OK,’ and after a while, I was just holding onto the reins, waiting to see where it was going and how the material worked. What I found was a collection of songs that brought me back to when I was starting out playing with the band—traveling a lot in the van, playing throughout the Southwest and West. These wide open landscapes had this quietness and expansive deepness that grounded me and evoked a lot of the curiosities I was drawn to when I started writing songs.”

In celebration of the new music, Isakov will tour through this fall, including shows at San Francisco’s The Masonic, Los Angeles’ Theatre at Ace Hotel (two nights, both sold out), Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (sold out), Chicago’s Chicago Theatre, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium (two nights), Atlanta’s Tabernacle (two nights), Washington DC’s The Anthem, Philadelphia’s Franklin Music Hall, Boston’s Roadrunner (two nights) and New York’s Beacon Theatre among many others. Special guests for the fall dates include Shovels & Rope, Damien Jurado, Lucius, The Milk Carton Kids, and Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers (playing Piano Piano). See below for complete itinerary.

Beloved by his devoted community of fans and critics alike, Isakov has garnered over 1 billion streams and released five full-length albums to date, including 2018’s Evening Machines, which was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. Of the record, NPR Music praised, “rich in narrative detail and beautifully contemplative,” while Billboard asserted, “characteristically ruminative…blending a gentle spaciousness with dusky atmospheres and carefully nuanced textures” and Rolling Stone declared, “beautiful collisions of acoustic instruments, Isakov’s soothing vocals and otherworldly noise.” Additionally, Isakov’s music has been featured in hit shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Big Sky, A Million Little Things, The Haunting of Hill House, Virgin River, The Blacklist, This is Us and many more.

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa and raised in Philadelphia, Isakov now calls Colorado home. When he isn’t on the road, he spends much of his time writing and recording songs in his barn studio, as well as running his farm in Boulder County, which provides produce to the farm’s CSA members, local restaurants, and Community Food Share (a Boulder County food bank).
