STEVE MARTIN – THE LONG...

Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers will release “The Long-Awaited Album” on Rounder Records on September 22. “The Long-Awaited Album,” Martin's newest collaboration with the Grammy-winning North Carolina – based band the Steep Canyon Rangers, is full of stories that mix humor and melancholy, whimsy and realism, rich characters and concrete details. And lots of banjos. That instrument—so dexterously, even acrobatically picked and strummed—is just as crucial to relating these new tales as the lyrics themselves, each chord and riff revealing new depths to Martin’s narrators and to his musical talent. Produced by Peter Asher, the new album is a collection of 14 stunning new songs including the boisterous and humorous new track “Caroline," the deeply romantic tune “All Night Long,” and the fantastical song “Santa Fe,” which showcases the lively dynamic between Martin and the Rangers.
