Brett Dennen’s new record is due out Oct. 22 on Atlantic, and in preparation, the manly man has put together some wilderness tips in the vein of Marty Stouffer’s Wild America. The two clips premiering below find Dennen painting puffy clouds and foraging for food in the wild.

Dennen will be on tour this fall, and his new album, Smoke And Mirrors, is available for pre-order now.
