Justin Townes Earle Announces Release Date for 'Harlem River Blues'

Following up the 2009's critically acclaimed Midnight at the Movies, Justin Townes Earle is set to release his next LP, Harlem River Blues, out September 14th on Bloodshot Records. The album features guest appearances from Jason Isbell, Bryn Davies and Calexico’s Paul Niehaus is a more mature, increasingly nuanced effort. Yet, it promises further standout tracks like last year's "Mama's Eyes" (definitely one of my favorites of 2009).

In addition to making new music for us to enjoy, Townes has kept plenty busy with other pursuits. He recently appeared on HBO's Treme with his dad, Steve Earle. GQ named him one of the 25 best dressed men in the world in 2010. He was also crowned with the Best New and Emerging Artist honor at the 2009 Americana Music Awards.

Looking forward to hearing that first single.
