August 18 street date. Gregory Alan Isakov wanted to pare it all back on "Appaloosa Bones", the Colorado-based singer's new album.

Arrangement-wise, the impulse to keep things simple was a pendulum swing away from his Grammy-nominated 2018 album, "Evening Machines". "I set out to make a record that was really bare bones," Isakov says. "I wanted to go backward a little bit, because "Evening Machines" was such a deep dive into arrangements. I wanted to have more of a raw experience with this one".

Isakov played many of the instruments on "Appaloosa Bones" himself. He recorded in a studio tucked away in a barn on his property outside of Boulder, Colorado, where he helps grow produce for CSA members, local restaurants, and an area food bank. The resulting album is intimate and hushed, but maybe not as spare as what Isakov initially had in mind. The eleven songs on the album are full of lush vocal harmonies and layers of instrumental textures that blend guitar, banjo, piano, and various other keyboards.
