Did Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, AND Pillbox Patti Just Tease New Music?
This morning, the country world woke up in utter confusion and chaos as Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, and Pillbox Patti all posted the same mysterious clip to Instagram. The video shows a young girl, wearing pigtails and a red tutu dress, passionately trying to play a recorder. In the background are dark green curtains and a banner saying “Lindeville.” Cryptically, the caption simply reads 9.30.
Five days ago, McBryde posted a reel featuring the “Lindeville Gazette.” In a recent article called “75 Pop and Jazz Albums, Shows and Festivals Coming This Fall,” the New York Times confirms that her upcoming album, “Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville,” will release on September 30th. It seems that Lindeville is the name of a made-up town - the NYT article highlights that “the strip club hosts a gospel night, and even the funeral home comes with a catchy jingle” there.
If the caption of “9.30” in McBryde’s, Brothers Osbrone’s, and Pillbox Patti’s posts refers to the date September 30th, this aligns perfectly with the release date of McBryde’s album.
A tracklist for “Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville” has been floating around on Twitter, featuring cover art strikingly similar to the aforementioned recorder video, and a tracklist with one Brothers Osborne and four Pillbox Patti collaborations.
Today morning’s posts seem to confirm this Twitter rumor. We think this means that music videos could be released for “Play Ball” (feat. Brothers Osborne), and at least one of the tracks with Pillbox Patti, on the same day as McBryde’s album.
Nonetheless, it seems like Ashley has lots of great music up her sleeves that we can’t wait to hear. We have no doubt that Ashley’s storytelling genius will truly shine through on this record, and the Brothers Osborne and Pillbox Patti collaborations have left us even more pumped! September 30th can’t come fast enough.
