Chart-topping, genre-bending artist Oliver Tree announces his eagerly awaited new album, Cowboy Tears, via Atlantic Records. Embracing a unique twangy, country sound, the upcoming project will be released on February 18th. The first single off "Cowboy Tears," titled “Cowboys Don’t Cry,” alongside an accompanying video starring Bella Thorne. Over sparse and breezy lo-fi production, Tree's voice glides towards a catchy chorus, singing, "Riding around this carousel, if you catch my drift," before lamenting, "Love is like a circle, there's no easy way to end." "Cowboys are the toughest guys. It's okay for us tough guys to cry, and the thing is, it's okay for everyone to cry," Tree explains. "There's a lot of anger that comes out of holding in your emotions, and that's popular for guys. Cowboy Tears is teaching people how to let it out and be able to put it out in a way that isn't going to be violent or self-destructive." A scorned lover boots Oliver Tree out of the house as she tosses his clothes across the lawn in the accompanying visual. Joined by the incomparable Bella Thorne, Oliver gets into all kinds of cowboy antics. He cruises around town on a longhorn four-wheeler with two brides, hoists a boombox John Cusack-style, and gets pelted with tomatoes by an angry girl gang. Tree will perform a medley of “Cowboys Don’t Cry” and “Life Goes On,” a single off the "Ugly Is Beautiful" deluxe release, on ABC’s "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" this Thursday, January 13.
