LOS ANGELES, CA – Corb Lund’s cinematic video for “Run This Town” premiered exclusively on CMT and CMT Canada across all the networks’ platforms: CMT Pure, CMT.com, CMT Mobile and CMT Social Media. Directed by Joshua Shoemaker (Hurray for the Riff Raff, The Deslondes), the video was shot in a style similar to Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s film “Birdman”, giving it the effect of one continuous shot. It features Lund reminiscing about a relationship that could have been, if they were just able to get on the same page. “If I’d have sped up and you’d have slowed down/You and me together coulda run this town,” Lund sings as the camera moves around him and his lost love, played by Nashville singer/songwriter Erin Rae, who seamlessly appears and disappears, as the lighting shifts from vivid blue to red.

“Run This Town” is just one of the many standouts from Lund’s album, Things That Can’t Be Undone, which was produced by Dave Cobb who also helmed Chris Stapleton’s #1 record, Traveller. Released in October on New West Records, Lund’s latest LP quickly shot to #10 on the Americana Radio Music Chart in just three weeks and is currently in the top 10 alongside Jason Isbell, Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin, Patty Griffin, Don Henley and Los Lobos.

Lund fulfilled a dream earlier this week, opening for the legendary Merle Haggard in Texas. In December, he will bring his tour to the Western United States with shows in Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle and throughout Montana, Wyoming and the Rockies. He returns to Europe in January for shows in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands, marking his first European tour in more than three years. Later that month he will embark on an extensive 23-date Canadian tour including stops in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, London, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto.

About Things That Can’t Be Undone

An ambitious, stylistically diverse and frequently surprising collection, Things That Can’t Be Undone, finds Lund pushing his wry observations, darkly biting tales, rural balladry and keen storytelling into musically and thematically new terrain, resulting in what many have called the best album of his accomplished career. Recorded with his long time band The Hurtin’ Albertans (Grant Siemens on electric guitar and lap steel, Kurt Ciesla on bass and Brady Valgardson on drums), the album is a self-assured and mature set of songs that pairs Lund’s characteristically sharp songcraft and mix of earnest Americana, rollicking honky tonk and rousing alt-country with ’60s rock, soul, and some Eastern psychedelia.

The record has received rave reviews in the US, Canada and UK with MOJO writing, “It’s great credit to both Lund and his versatile backing band, The Hurtin’ Albertans, that such see-sawing through genres can sound so much like a singular piece of work.” NPR hailed it as “the high mark of a long career” in their “Songs We Love” premiere of the powerful “Sadr City,” a tragic tale about the Siege of Sadr City, the first big flare-up of sectarian violence in Iraq after Mission Accomplished. The song continues Lund’s tradition of military songs that he began in with his 2007 album, Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier! Rolling Stone Country, who also premiered the Stax Records-steeped album opener “Weight Of The Gun,” a sort of Louis L’Amour Western tale crossed with Motown, recently singled out Lund for their November “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” feature and declared the album is “poised to help the singer-songwriter reach an even wider audience.” In Popmatters’ 8/10 review they said, “Melodically engaging and narratively compelling, Things That Can’t Be Undone furthers the case for Corb Lund as one of the best contemporary country songwriters.”
