Paul Cauthen will release new album Room 41 on 6th September via Lightning Rod Records.
The album was co-written entirely by Cauthen at The Belmont Hotel in Dallas, TX and lead single Cocaine Country Dancing is available now. Watch the video below:
Room 41 was recorded at Niles City Sound (Leon Bridges, Nicole Atkins) and Dallas’ Modern Electric studio. The 10 tracks feature a who’s-who of modern Texas musicians, including Matt Pence (Jason Isbell, Nikki Lane), Beau Bedford and Jason Burt.
Written by Cauthen when he was living out of a suitcase in Belmont, Room 41 chronicles Cauthen’s white-knuckle journey to the brink and back, a harrowing experience that landed him in and out of the hospital as he careened between ecstasy and misery more times than he could count.
The lyrics tackle lust and envy, pride and despair, destruction and redemption.
Room 41 is the follow-up to 2016 solo debut My Gospel, which was selected on a number of best of lists at the end of that year. Cauthen has supported Elle King, Margo Price, Midland, Cody Jinks, Social Distortion and more.

1. Holy Ghost Fire (Cauthen, Jason Burt)
