Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.

Description


Arlo McKinley's This Mess We're In is the country singer-songwriter's newest release on John Prine's label Oh Boy Records and his sophomore album on the label. McKinley was the last artist to be signed to the label by Prine and his son, Jody Whelan. This Mess We're In follows the 2020 Die Midwestern, which drew from the sounds of street soul, country, punk and gospel. The album also follows major events in McKinley's lives, from the passing of his mother and best friend, and more. It represents the ability to find comfort, hope and love after loss. The record is produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell, St. Paul & The Broken Bones) and features a band of Ken Coomer (drums), Will Sexton (guitar) and Rick Steff (keyboards), along with string arrangements.

The VMP edition of Arlo McKinley's This Mess We're In is limited to 500 copies and is pressed on 1LP Clear with Black and Orange Swirl vinyl. It's pressed at The Vinyl Lab and will arrive in a single direct-to-board, foil stamped and numbered jacket along with a vinyl insert. The album is mastered at Infrasonic Mastering by Pete Lyman.
