Blitzen Trapper are ‘Wild & Reckless’ on new single

Earlier this year, Blitzen Trapper brought an unusual dream to life: their own stage musical was produced and performed for a 28 day stint in their home city of Portland. The play was called Wild & Reckless and was something that the band had been dreaming of for a long time, and were proud to finally bring to fruition. Now the band is gearing up to release a companion piece album, also called Wild & Reckless, and today they have shared the title track.

As its title suggests, as well as the fact that it is drawn from experiences dating back years for the band, ‘Wild & Reckless‘ is full of youthful energy and bustling imagery, with no shortage of nostalgia brought to the fore by Eric Earley‘s classic country sounding vocals. Listen to the song below.

The album Wild & Reckless will feature 7 songs from the stage production, as well as 5 new ones.  It comes out through Lojinx on 3rd November.
