Preview of new albums by Colin James, Lilly Hiatt, plus latest from Whitehorse, Adrian Sutherland, Shayla McDaniel

Colin James: As The Crow Flies

The guitar wizard and singer-songwriter from Saskatchewan will release his 20th studio album, Open Road, in November. It's a mix of originals and covers, including a couple of Dylan tunes and this song, written and originally recorded in 1972 by the late Tony Joe White.

Lilly Hyatt: Lately

Coming just a year after her sophomore release, Walking Proof, the Nashville-based singer-songwriter has a new LP coming out this month, and we're bringing you the title track..

Whitehorse: Am I Just Gonna Stand There (While You Take My Girl Away)

We previously featured a couple of early singles from Strike Me Down, and now that the full album is out we're pulling out this breezy tune about an unhappy situation. "It's not that I don't care / To pull the strings in favour of me / But I could never ask you to love me more." So, the answer to the title question seems to be, yeah I guess I am.

Adrian Sutherland: Magic Hits

Our regular listeners are familiar with this singer-songwriter from Attawapiskat First Nation in northern Ontario. The frontman of roots-rock band Midnight Shine just released his first solo album, When the Magic Hits. We previously featured "Right Here," and now add this sort-of title track.

Shayla McDaniel: Alright

Also familiar to our regular listeners is this songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Tennessee, who has been turning out a steady stream of singles on which she sings and plays all instruments. This latest track, with a full-band sound, is "about doing the best you can to feel the best you can, both inside and out."
