Singer-songwriter Cass McCombs has announced plans to release a 22-track album that he insists is not a double album. Titled Big Wheel and Others, the “bundle, a bindle, a hay bale, and an oil barrel of songs” featuring “road songs, rock songs, folk songs, blues songs, country songs, rhythm and blues songs, skronk non-songs, cinema songs, cult songs, poem songs, jams, and ballads” will hit stores October 15th via Domino. Get all that? Sheesh.

The album will be available as a double CD, a standard and limited edition 2xLP, or on digital services. The limited edition 2xLP will be reserved to 500 copies and feature special packaging, an alternate album cover, and an exclusive 7″ containing unreleased tracks. Pre-sales are on-going at Domino.

In the meantime, take a lift off the album with “There Can Only Be One”, a bouncy light rock jam that would make Kurt Vile nod his head in approval. It’s the sort of song that makes you wanna find someone to squeeze. Stream below, followed by the album’s tracklist and a shortlist of tour dates for the fall.
