On October 28, William Fussell will release Honey Harper & The Infinite Sky, the Georgian "cosmic country" artist's third album as Honey Harper. His new single "Ain't No Cowboys In Georgia," out today, may hint at a very specific kind of loss in the title, but Harper's ballad is infused with a universal melancholy. Watch the cinematic music video below, directed by Angus Borsos and starring Montreal songwriter Sean Nicholas Savage.

In a press statement, Fussell revealed the deeply personal inspiration behind the song's title.

“The words ‘...and by the way there ain’t no cowboys in Georgia,’ was one of the last messages I received before my Papa passed away along with my Granny in 2021. The quote came at the end of a long angry message regarding an interview I did earlier in the year where I had said, ‘you can never trust a cowboy,’ referring to the complicated relationship I had with that side of my family in south Georgia and the falling out we had a few years prior. Their passing hit hard in a way that I still can’t really comprehend because in a lot of ways the relationship was already dead but the feeling of a missed opportunity to mend it is something that you can’t really shake… and that feeling of finality, never being able to change what happened, is something that will probably always stay with me.

For the rest of the year, Honey Harper will open for Amanda Shires on a tour of North America. Find those dates below and read Honey Harper's 2019 GEN F here.
