Toronto-based cosmic country band Honey Harper released their sophomore album Honey Harper & The Infinite Sky via ATO Records.

The band is currently in the midst of a national tour supporting Amanda Shires with upcoming shows in Chicago, Minneapolis, Austin and many more. Find a full list of tour dates below or visit here.
Earlier this week, Honey Harper released the “Urban Cowboy by way of The Terminator” official video for “Boots Mine Gold,” which BrooklynVegan proclaimed, “has a late-’70s / early-’80s feel to it, gleaming, electric and lush, which is a sweet spot for William Fussell’s deep croon.”
The song followed the recent release of the “cinematic” (The FADER) official video for the single “Ain’t No Cowboys In Georgia” that was shot in the Canadian Rockies and guest stars musician Sean Nicholas Savage.
The first song to be released from the album, “Broken Token,” was released alongside a live performance video from EastWest Studios, which BrooklynVegan said “marks a progression in Honey Harper’s spectral country sound,” while The Boot praised “the innovative, genre-bending outfit” and called it a “modernized, groovy throwback to classic country-rock of the 1970s.”
Honey Harper & The Infinite Sky emerged from a deliberate revamping of the band’s creative approach with Honey Harper co-founder and keyboardist Alana Pagnutti taking on a far greater role in the songwriting process alongside frontman William Fussell.
The 12 song collection marks their first time recording with their stacked band The Infinite Sky featuring their longtime bassist and contributing writer Mick Mayer, pianist John Carroll Kirby (Solange, Steve Lacy), Spoon keyboardist Alex Fischel, guitarist Jackson MacIntosh (Drugdealer, Jessica Pratt), pedal-steel player Connor Gallaher (Black Lips, Calexico), and TOPS drummer Riley Fleck. The album was mixed at Wowcat Studios in Los Angeles by Joel Ford (yes/and, Ford & Lopatin).
