New Orleans soulful alt-country band The Deslondes have announced their first album in five years, Ways & Means, due July 8 via New West Records (pre-order). The album was produced by longtime collaborator Andrija Tokic (who's also known for working with Alabama Shakes), and it features Margo Price on the title track, as well as contributions from Twain and Billy Contreras. The first single is the gravelly, dusty Americana ballad "South Dakota Wild One," and you can hear that below.

The Deslondes also announced a tour, including NYC's Mercury Lounge on July 21. All dates are listed below.
