Monday, October 16th, 2023 – Jaime Wyatt returns with the release of the bright new track “Back To The Country.” The song is a retrospective look on her wild life and the impact of a journey around Nashville with a fan-turned-friend.
Also featuring Joshy Soul, Ryan Hartman, Scott Davis, Will Rockwell, and Trevor Nealon on keys “Back To The Country” is the latest preview from Wyatt’s genre-defying work of healing and self-love Feel Good, out November 3rd on New West.
“Back To The Country” follows Wyatt’s most recent soulful reimagining of the Grateful Dead’s “Althea,” and original tracks “Love Is A Place” and “World Worth Keeping” which thus far have earned widespread praise from Billboard, Relix, Spin, No Depression and beyond.
Wyatt also says, “‘Back to the Country’ is dedicated to the memory of a fan who became a friend and lost their battle with cancer. They came on a trip to Nashville and I took them around to Honky Tonks and out to the country in Goodlettsville to feed mini ponies. It was one of the funnest times I’ve ever had honestly. My friend passed away a couple months later and it made me start valuing my life and my time here on Earth. The lyrics have a lot of my own nostalgia, looking back on a wild youth and remembering all the hilarious and sweet and difficult dynamics I’ve shared with people over the years.”
Today Wyatt also announces a US headlining tour following consistent touring behind ZZ Ward, The Head And The Heart, The Revivalists, Sierra Ferrell, Grace Potter, the Avett Brothers, her debut at Stagecoach, Newport Folk and Austin City Limits festival. Wyatt will play at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in NYC, The Troubadour in Los Angeles, Lincoln Hall in Chicago and more. Tickets for all US shows will go on sale this Friday, October 20th AT 10 AM local time with pre-sale beginning this Wednesday at 10 AM local time (PW: FEELGOOD).

Additional praise for Jaime Wyatt’s come from Pitchfork, NME, Fader, and NPR who love her “remarkable voice” as well as Rolling Stone who’ve applauded her “lush, layered, and complex” performances. Feel Good is undoubtedly her most ambitious album yet where Wyatt pushes her sound to new sonic and emotional heights.
Recorded with Black Pumas’ Adrian Quesada, Feel Good is bold and ecstatic, built on tight, intoxicating grooves that belie the songs’ substantial emotional stakes, showcasing Wyatt’s unparalleled artistry and musical prowess. Wyatt’s writing is unguarded and intuitive here, tapping into the deep recesses of her subconscious as she reckons with grief and growth, and her delivery is visceral to match, cutting straight to the bone with equal parts sensitivity and swagger. Taken as a whole, the collection stands as a radical act of creative liberation from an artist already known for pushing limits, a genre-defying work of healing, queer joy and self-love that tips its cap to everything from Al Green and Otis Redding to Waylon Jennings and Bobbie Gentry in its relentless pursuit of peace and pleasure.
