Josh Ritter has announced that his new album, So Runs the World Away, will be released in Ireland on April 23rd and on May 4th in the U.S. and rest of the world. That’s great news, as Ritter has pretty much become one of my favorite songwriters in the past year or so.
Here’s what Mr. Ritter has to say about the album:
So Runs the World Away took me over a year to make. I’m proud of the fact that I’ve never recorded a song for a record that I didn’t believe in absolutely and that didn’t feel, in its writing, recording, and performance, like a moment of real inspiration. I love the songs on this record so much, and my thanks go to my incredible and talented band, my family, and my family of listeners wherever they may be in this fast-spinning world.
All my very best, and see you soon!
Even better, he’s offering up one of the new songs, “Change of Time,” as a free download. Have a listen below.
