‘American Slang’ pulses with an anthemic road-trip feel, imbued with nostalgia for The Cadillac Three’s hometown heritage and reflecting on life on the road with tenderness and pride. The track was written with Lori McKenna of The Bird And The Rifle and produced by The Cadillac Three, creating a huge, spacious sound with driving kick drum and delicate lead guitar.
The track’s accompanying video aligns dreamlike visuals with the song’s heartfelt lyrics, spaced between retro TV fuzz. Time-lapse footage of open highways and cities by night incite a sensation of distance and life on the road.
Having already played main stage slots at Download Festivals in both France and the UK this summer, the trio are touring the US currently before embarking on another world tour this autumn.
The Nashville natives will be taking their electrifying performances around the globe throughout their ‘Long Hair Don’t Care’ tour, with nine UK dates featuring special guests Brothers Osborne in November, including a highly anticipated London show at O2 Kentish Town Forum – see the UK dates below.
