Folk rocker Tim Showalter, better known as Strand of Oaks, has announced he will be releasing his sixth album Eraserland on March 22. On Jan. 15, Strand of Oaks released the first song from the set that was born from struggles the artist had after his previous album. "Weird Ways" finds him finding the light and not feeling the pain he had—it disappeared.
Along with the song, the music video was also released (see above) which shows scenes of him and members of My Morning Jacket working on the track in the studio and blends in kaleidoscopic images as the meditative song transforms into a blossoming anthem.
Strand of Oaks will head out on the road to support the new effort and along the way, he will be stopping at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's Union Transfer on May 10. Tickets for the event go on sale on Jan. 18 at 10 a.m. For pricing and availability, click here for event details.
The upcoming Eraserland follows Strand of Oaks 2017 effort Hard Love and 2018's companion Harder Love. The latter compiled demos and alternative versions of tracks as well as unreleased songs from the sessions.
