Nashville’s Cory Branan has announced that he will release his new album The No-Hit Wonder on Bloodshot Records.

To celebrate, he’s shared free streams of the title track and ‘You Make Me’;

The album features guest appearances from Jason Isbell, Craig Finn and Steve Selvidge of the Hold Steady, Caitlin Rose, Tim Easton, and Austin Lucas.

Since releasing his debut album MUTT in 2012, Branan has lost several family members, got married and had two kids, bringing a genuine sense of love, loss, home and dreams to The No-Hit Wonder. He spent this time touring with artists like The Gaslight Anthem and Jason Isbell. The combination of settling down and the ups and downs that we all experience inform the album.

The album is a celebratory anthem of the underdogs, the world-weary and making peace with the cards life has dealt you.
