His website also announced the release of the singer’s most recent record, “Peso in my Pocket,” released last year after a lengthy hiatus from touring owing to Covid pandemic limitations.

Keith claimed that the inspiration for the album’s songs came to him on the spur of the moment while he was out running.

“I’d look at the song ideas I had on my phone before I started running, and then I’d take off,” he explained. “My time would be up before I knew it, and I’d have constantly been working, grinding gears in my thoughts about the tunes. I’d arrive home, turn on my phone’s recorder, and record what I could.”
