The Del McCoury Band has announced the pending release their next album, The Streets of Baltimore, available to the public on September 17 and available for pre-order now.
While their last two albums — 2012's tribute to Bill Monroe (Old Memories) and 2011's Preservation Hall Band collaboration (American Legacies) — were recorded with themes in mind, the next record will show the band at their "most relaxed and free-form."
The album's title is a reference to McCoury's early days, when he got his start playing Baltimore honky-tonks in the late 1950s.
These old school country influences are present on the album, which includes renditions of tunes like Bobby Bare's Streets of Baltimore, Brenda Lee's Too Many Rivers, Jerry Lew Lewis' Once More With Feeling and a take on Ray Stevens' banjo-driven version of Misty.
