SoCal country artist Sam Outlaw is releasing his new album, Tenderheart, on April 14.

Sam Outlaw’s brand-new LP, Tenderheart, out April 14, has already received a string of praise from popular news outlets. NPR Music raved about the up-and-coming musician’s sophomore album: “To hear Outlaw glorify sincerity in such a clear-eyed way, awake to a larger world of needs, feelings and perspectives, is a marvelously welcome thing right about now.” And Indie website Fader complimented Outlaw’s music video for “Everyone’s Looking for Home”: “Alternating between tour footage and actual home videos of his wife and newborn child, it’s a moving three-minute distillation of his new life, with a mariachi breakdown to boot.”

New York-based music blog Brooklyn Vegan highlighted the artist with a premiere of the single “Bottomless Mimosas,” and Bret Easton Ellis’ podcast found Outlaw and Ellis discussing the moral superiority movement.

For a sneak peek of what is sure to be an impressive followup to his first album, Angeleno, watch these videos of the singles “Trouble” and the “Everyone’s Looking for Home.”

Outlaw is currently on tour, with a show at New York City’s famous Mercury Lounge on April 20. For more information on tour dates and the artist, visit his website.
