Country group Midland have announced the documentary Midland: The Sonic Ranch, which will be accompanied by new music.
The doc will take viewers back to the spring of 2014 when the trio first formed. According to Midland, the band spent just 11 days writing and recording together at the Sonic Ranch studio in El Paso, Texas.
“Midland was not so much a band as an experiment fueled by an assortment of spirits—but mostly tequila and the possibilities painted in our imaginations,” the band shared in a statement. “We had no record label or manager and we had never played a show together. These recordings capture three friends, at a live-in studio in the desert, trying to make a dream come true.”
“Cowgirl Blues” is the first preview of the documentary soundtrack. Its accompanying black and white visual catches the band both on the road and on the stage in various states of being, from off-roading in a pickup truck to simply brushing their teeth in the morning.
Midland: The Sonic Ranch will premiere ViacomCBS platforms such as CMT, MTV Live, and PlutoTV’s CMT Equal Play channel on March 19. Its official soundtrack will arrive on the same day.
Midland’s last studio album was 2019’s Let it Roll. Last year they released the live album Live From the Palomino. Watch the trailer for Midland: The Sonic Ranch here:
