Recorded live in one take, the bubbly “Goodbye Temporarily” set the tone for Far Cries and Close Calls, the forthcoming album from Oklahoma singer/songwriter John Calvin Abney. Decamping to Little Rock, Arkansas, to record his latest LP, Abney notes of the lead single, “It was the first song approached when entering the studio, and gave the entire space, along with those involved, a calm yet energetic sense that we were going to create something glowing and real.”

  
A sleight of hand lyricist, multi-instrumentalist and sideman to the likes of John Moreland, Abney can put the lingering doubt of the instantly memorable “Goodbye Temporarily” to rest once Far Cries and Close Calls is released on September 23 via Horton Records.
