Extended Play - Cory Taylor Cox - Friday May 13, 2016

DIY, Indie Rock & Roll songwriter Cory Taylor Cox’s third studio album Extended Play, releases on major online stores Friday, May 13, 2016.  Available for digital download and streaming, Cox’s eclectic 4-song southern indie EP is drenched with the passion of the grassroots music community.

Digital single Memphis Kids will precede Extended Play with a Friday, April 29, release. Written with Memphian Joseph Barrios, “Memphis Kids” is a reverb-guitar anthem for the various levels of the city’s music scene; from past to present, downtown to the suburbs.

A strong supporter of the vinyl format resurgence, Cox plans to release a limited edition colored vinyl 7” record of Extended Play. These 33rpm keepsakes are available for pre-order now and expected to ship in fall 2016.

Bonus tracks are available exclusively when Extended Play is purchased through Bandcamp or with vinyl pre-order at www.corytaylorcox.com. These B-sides include the original acoustic version of Memphis Kids, first released as part of a charity fundraiser compilation for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

Strategically planned for release on the 5-year anniversary of Cox’s EP We Made these Sounds Together, Extended Play captures the adventure of refining songs with a new core-group of band members and even collaboration with old friends.  Songwriter Charlie Hardin Murphey of the band Commitment Bells lends talents to For a Gentleman, an acoustic tribute to a mutual friend.  Murphey excitedly coined Cox’s new recordings with the oxymoronic genre label of “Songwriter-Punk.”
