Railroad Earth Announces New Album ‘All For The Song,’ Confirms Winter Tour 2020 & Shares Single
Railroad Earth will release a new album entitled All For The Song in 2020. The band will support the LP with an extensive 2020 winter tour and previewed All For The Song by unveiling the single “The Great Divide.”
Railroad Earth tapped Anders Osborne to produce All For The Song. On Sunday, the band brought their third and final headlining set of this year’s Hangtown Music Festival in Placerville, California to a close with the live debut of “The Great Divide.” Frontman Todd Sheaffer penned the song. “The Great Divide” is a tribute to the late Andy Goessling, a co-founding member of the band who passed away last year. All For The Song will be RRE’s first album without Goessling.
