The rise for Canada’s Orville Peck has been a swift one. In a short time he went from unknown to highly regarded country crooner. Behind the success of his debut full length Pony, Peck quickly made his name known. Now with a new label and seemingly new everything else, Peck breaks out an acoustic version of his latest single “Summertime.” As you’d expect, it sounds fairly amazing.
Donning a pink cowboy hat and his signature mask, the mix here has his vocals higher in the front. Against a piano and his own acoustic guitar, Peck brings you into his ethos while still keeping the core of the track together. Here the song feels more personal, as if he’s deliver the letter in person. His vocals ring stronger while the words don’t escape you as he sings.
The video for “Summertime (Acoustic)” can be watched above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming platforms or digitally purchased in all online music retailers via Columbia Records. Orville Peck is scheduled to begin touring on May 02 in New Orleans, LA at Music Box Village until October 31 in New York, NY at Madison Square Garden. His complete tour routing is available here. Due to COVID-19, these dates are subject to change.
