The Lone Bellow unveiled the new single “Dried Up River” as well as a hilarious video for the track. “Dried Up River” appears on a deluxe edition of the band’s 2020 album, Half Moon Light, which is set for release via Dualtone on Friday, May 14. Additionally, The Lone Below confirmed a series of tour dates.

The National’s Aaron Dessner produced Half Moon Light which was recorded at Long Pond Studio in New York’s Hudson Valley. The trio consisting of lead vocalist Zach Williams, guitarist Brian Elmquist and multi-instrumentalist Kanene Donehey Pipkin are joined on the album by guitarist Josh Kaufman and drummer J.T. Baites. Half Moon Light Deluxe Edition pairs the original album with Second Phase, a collection of four new songs and two alternate versions.

“We are so proud of this video for our latest single ‘Dried Up River.’ We invited Matt Hollis, Brian’s actual high school football coach, to play himself in his first cameo performance and man did he deliver,” The Lone Bellow said in a statement. “We are so grateful to him and everyone else that made this possible. We hope you guys enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it! Big thank you’s to Debbie Ewing for making our video dreams a reality!”

“We had our final push of creative energy with ‘Dried Up River,’ a song we produced ourselves here in Nashville with our good friend Tyler James,” added the band. “‘I want to be grateful for the food on my table,’ has been a line that we’ve come back to countless times over the past year. We recorded this song knowing we wanted to sing it alongside a raucous room full of people, and releasing it gets us one step closer to that dream. We are so looking forward to those days.”
