Blitzen Trapper will issue their seventh album, appropriately titled VII, on October 1st via Vagrant Records. With less than a month before the release date, the Portland country outfit have shared a new track called “Shine On”. While their earlier single “Ever Loved Once” was rollicking and reflective, this latest number is pure fun, full of folksy glitz and body-moving swagger. Forget turntables and synths, the band’s able to start up a modern hoedown with just a wailing harmonica and some winding guitars. Listen below, followed by a video of the band’s own track commentary (via Paste).

In support of VII, the band will be on tour starting next week through late November.
