Buck Meek - Two New Singles 'Cuero Dudes' & 'Beauty Opens Doors'
Buck Meek : Two New Singles 'Cuero Dudes' & 'Beauty Opens Doors'
5th January 2024

Today, singer/songwriter and Big Thief guitarist Buck Meek shares two new singles, “Cuero Dudes” and “Beauty Opens Doors,” and gears up for his upcoming January tour.  Last year, Meek released his stunning third solo album, Haunted Mountain, on 4AD.  The album featured songs co-written with one of Buck’s longtime musical hero Jolie Holland and gained universal acclaim from the likes of Associated Press (“music as inviting and complex as the world-traveled Buck Meek”), Rolling Stone (“a serene pedal steel stunner”), No Depression (“Meek’s signature soft, lilting harmonies feel their fullest ever, making it easy to fully immerse in this beguiling universe of love.”), and more.

Now, to kickstart 2024, Meek has shared these two new singles, as well as a video for “Cuero Dudes,” a song that should sound familiar to those who have listened to the record.  It’s a rollicking reworking of the track “Cyclades,” one of the album’s singles and live standouts.  Meanwhile, “Beauty Opens Doors” was a song recorded during the making of Haunted Mountain, one Buck truly loved, but simply didn’t fit the album, so today it makes its way to the world.
