Ron Pope has premiered the music video for Can’t Stay Here.
The video was unveiled on Rolling Stone Country as part of their 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know feature recently. Can’t Stay Here is taken from Pope’s forthcoming album Work, released on 18th August 2017.
Work is the follow-up to last year’s Ron Pope & The Nighthawks. He will begin an international tour in support of the record on 28th September.
Talking about the album Pope says, “This album follows me from when I was thirteen and a teacher told my mother that I’d probably end up in prison; I started messing around writing songs that year. It’s been mostly uphill ever since.”
Appearing on the new album are Jay Collins on sax (Gregg Allman Band), Mike Riddleberger on drums (Bleachers), Andrew Pertes on bass (Savoir Adore), Kai Welch on keys/accordion (Abigail Washburn, Glen Campbell), Jeff Malinowski on guitar (Frances Cone), Alex Brumel on guitar/pedal steel and Charles Ray on flugelhorn/trumpet. The record also features guest vocals on select tracks from Mary Richardson (The Banditos), Katie Schecter, Molly Parden and Vanessa McGowan.
Over his career to date, Pope has release six studio albums and surpassed one million monthly listeners on Spotify with over 200 million streams. His music has been featured in shows such as The Vampire Diaries and 90210 and he appeared in season three of Nashville.
Fans in the UK can see Pope at the following dates later this year:
November 5 – London, UK – The Garage
November 6 – Manchester, UK – Academy 3
