Cass McCombs is gearing up for the release of his new album, titled Big Wheel and Others, which is due out on October 15 via Domino Records. It’s a 21-track double LP and serves as the follow-up to his pair of 2011 efforts–Wit’s End and Humor Risk. You’ve already heard Big Wheel…‘s “There Can Be Only One” and he’s now shared “Brighter!” featuring the late Karen Black (RIP). Both tracks are available to stream at the bottom of this post.
