Hear Orville Peck’s “Turn to Hate,” a melancholic country rocker from Pony, his forthcoming Sub Pop debut

Orville Peck has shared “Turn to Hate,” a new offering from Pony, his forthcoming debut. The melancholic country rocker finds our masked singer struggling to keep his resentment from building into hatred. A continuous battle between embracing the strength and freedom of being an outsider, and the inevitable struggle of wanting normalcy and familiarity. It encapsulates Orville’s dilemma as a cowboy. He sings about having to constantly repair situations in his wake, and fighting with himself over his decision making. To stay or go; to cry or not; whether to leave without saying goodbye in order to soften the blow; All the while wishing someone would tell him that they “can’t stay,” and to make the decision for him.  
 
Orville Peck will release Pony on CD/LP/DL March 22nd worldwide through Sub Pop, with the exception of Canada where the album will be released by Royal Mountain Records.  
 
Pony, which features the lead single and official video for “Dead of Night,” along with the aforementioned “Turn to Hate,” “Buffalo Run,” and the previously released “Big Sky,” was produced by Orville Peck, recorded and mixed by Jordan Koop at The Noise Floor on Gabriola Island, British Columbia and mastered by Harris Newman at Grey Market Mastering in Montreal, Quebec.
