Midland Go Full Jimmy Buffett on New Song ‘The Last Resort’

Country music’s roguish trio celebrate getting lost on the title track to their upcoming third album, ‘The Last Resort: Greetings From’

Midland follow up last summer’s teaser EP The Last Resort with their third official full-length album. Titled The Last Resort: Greetings From, the record arrives May 6.

Ahead of its release, the country trio of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy, and Jess Carson, offer a preview of the LP’s tone with the Jimmy Buffett-evoking title track “The Last Resort.” It’s a get-out-of-town song, with the southernmost point of Florida as the destination. Wystrach sings about hitting “every bar on A1A” (the highway to Key West) while lamenting how he’s lost his mind and soon will “run out of shore.” In true Buffett fashion, he even admits “it’s all my fault.”

The song arrives with a lyric video that finds the roguish trio shooting pool in Nashville, driving around in a convertible, and ultimately floating on clear-blue waters on a boat. It’s a postcard for living not just the good life, but the Midland life.

The band is in Las Vegas for Monday’s ACM Awards and will play a pair of shows there this weekend. They’ll launch The Last Resort Tour on March 19 in Winterhaven, California, and make a stop at Stagecoach in late April, before heading overseas on a European tour in May.
