The Infamous Stringdusters released their first true compilation album, Songs from the River, today via Americana Vibes/Regime Music Group. The 24-song collection carries a river/water theme to herald their upcoming Nights on the River Tour, which will take the string quintet through various river towns across the country this summer and fall.

Launching with “1901: A Canyon Odyssey” from The Dusters’ 2017 album Laws of Gravity and flowing into a pairing of “Summercamp” and “Where the River Runs Cold” from 2014’s Let It Go, Songs from the River “serves as a summative anthology that captures the essence of flowing melodies and rhythmic currents,” as per a press release.


Songs from the River also contains songs from the band members’ solo projects: Chris Pandolfi’s “Ballad of Earl Parrot” featuring Oteil Burbridge, Travis Book’s “Afraid of Love” from his recent release Love and Other Strange Emotions, Andy Falco’s “Rattlesnake Creek,” Jeremy Garrett’s “North and South of the River” and Andy Hall’s “Resurrection Bay” among others.

Notably, the compilation also features a live version of “Rain,” a track that has never been previously recorded or released.

“Combining our love of songwriting and our love of nature has always been part of who we are as a band,” dobro player Andy Hall said of the decision to compile the record and tour around river towns. “We’ve spent many nights on the river together, singing, playing, and celebrating friendship and wild places. We present to you our appreciation of that eternal flow with this compilation, Songs from the River.”
