Rising Canadian country music duo, High Valley, is back with their highly anticipated single titled “Single Man” from their forthcoming album. Brad and Curtis Rempel are the brothers that comprise the bluegrass-influenced duo. In 2017, the duo was on New York Country Swag’s Artists to Watch list and have been rising ever since.
The new single is upbeat which is the vibe the duo usually goes for when putting out songs. “Fans always say, ‘Man! Your records are so upbeat, and we can’t help but smile when we listen to them,’” Brad says in a recent press release. “That’s honestly the greatest compliment anyone could give us. Because we’re not that band that’s gonna be singing these hurtin’ and break-up and cheating songs. That’s not real life for us. There’s a lot of positivity over here.”
Recently, the duo’s career has taken off following the breakout success of their 2016 debut album, Dear Life, which features the gold-certified single “Make You Mine” and “She’s With Me,” the duo’s first Top 10 at country radio. The two also clinched two consecutive ACM nominations for New Vocal Duo and were brought out on the road by Old Dominion. They also embarked on their own headlining dates like the Highway Finds Tour which we caught back in 2017.
In the past year, the band has been holed up in the studio writing and recording for their forthcoming album. The new single is just a taste for fans of what’s expected in the future.
Both members of the duo insist that the new single may very well be their most revealing song yet. Brad talked about the reason behind penning the new song, “I wanted to be brutally honest. The lifestyle as a single man on the surface looks amazing. You have a relaxed accountability that comes with this sense of freedom, and yet true happiness exists at a far more profound level. Most importantly I wanted to write a song that said, ‘I promise you I wouldn’t be able to find any single man on this planet that if he saw what I had — my wonderful wife and my family — he wouldn’t say, “Dude! Can we please trade places?’”
The journey is not over yet for the duo, its actually just beginning. “Single Man” is now in the hands of the world and with a new album on the way, the future is looking very bright and fans can enjoy the ride with them.
“Single Man” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
