Happy Release Day, William Tyler!

Happy Release Day, William Tyler!

William Tyler’s Merge debut Impossible Truth is in stores now on CD, double-LP, and digital. 

Recorded and mixed at Beech House in Nashville and co-produced by Tyler and Mark Nevers, Impossible Truth features guest appearances from Chris Scruggs, Luke Schneider, Roy Agee, and Lambchop compatriot Scott Martin.

Of the album, SPIN writes: “Painting a layered and hazy, John Fahey-indebted landscape, the Lambchop and Silver Jews associate comes across as travel-weary cartographer and six-string virtuoso all at once.” The L.A. Times describes Impossible Truth as “impossibly beautiful.” And PopMatters included the album in its “Listening Ahead” feature, while SPIN chose William as one of its “5 Best New Artists.”

Watch this lovely album teaser video for a glimpse of who William Tyler is and the story behind the songs of Impossible Truth. Also, see William perform “We Can’t Go Home Again” live for Shaker Steps.

Impossible Truth is available now in the Merge store on CD, double-LP and digital.
