Canadian singer/songwriter Mariel Buckley has announced that she'll follow 2018's Driving in the Dark with her sophomore album, Everywhere I Used to Be, on August 12 via Birthday Cake Records (pre-order). It was produced by Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The Weather Station, etc), and the first single is "Shooting at the Moon," a propulsive heartland rock/alt-country song that comes with soaring pedal steel, a War On Drugs-y rhythm section, and a hook from Mariel that you'll be humming after one listen.

"'Shooting at the Moon' is a fun little ripper of a song about the trials and tribulations of touring as a mid-level Canadian musician and battling with the inevitable ego of being somebody who works on stage," she says. "Snapshots of life on the road, long-distance romance and the ever-enduring underdog spirit that drives this tune, keeping feet on the ground and eyes on the prize. The video (shot and directed by Sebastian Buzzalino/Unfolding Creative Photography and edited by Mike Linton/Centric Productions) tries to capture that feeling – the fervor and excitement of the road alongside the almost mundane repetition of set-up, tear down, driving and more driving. Aiming to showcase the off-stage, less glamourized part of the touring band." Listen and watch the video below.

Mariel also has tour dates opening for Canadian alt-country duo The Bros. Landreth, including NYC's The Loft at City Winery on June 13. All North American dates are listed below. Europe/UK dates here.
