Indie88 Premiere: Baby Jey Share New Single ‘Someday My Space Cowboy Will Come’

'Like Mac Demarco on a steady diet of country records'

Edmonton, Alberta-based outfit Baby Jey craft songs that draw influences from country, jazz, and pop-rock. For their upcoming album, Someday Cowboy, the band leaned on producer Mitch Holtby to expand their sound even further.

Today, Indie88 premieres Baby Jey’s new single, “Someday My Space Cowboy Will Come.”

“For our forthcoming new record, Someday Cowboy, we threw Montreal producer Mitch Holtby into the mix,” the band told Indie88. “His multi-genre background spans a hip hop career that saw him open for acts like Big Boi, Cadence Weapon, Buck 65 and Chali 2na. This unique match between singer-songwriters and a hip hop producer may partially explain the album’s unique blend of shimmery synths and pulsing rhythms with lap steel guitar and jangling mandolins. The song ‘Someday My Space Cowboy Will Come’ is a play on ‘Someday My Prince Will Come.’ It’s a fun little tune about having a mirage in the desert.”

Frontman Jeremy Witten’s songwriting has been described as “Mac Demarco on a steady diet of country records.” Check out Baby Jey’s new single, “Someday My Space Cowboy Will Come,” below.

Baby Jey’s debut album arrives on September 14.
