Singer-songwriter Josh Ritter will officially issue his new studio album Gathering on Friday, September 22 though Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers. The album featuring a guest appearance by Bob Weir has been made available to stream via NPR Music’s First Listen series in advance of next week’s official release.

Weir appears on the song “When Will I Be Changed,” which is one of 13 tracks appearing on Gathering. Ritter and Weir collaborated extensively on the Grateful Dead guitarist’s 2016 solo album Blue Mountain.

Recording sessions for Gathering were held with engineer Trina Shoemaker at Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, New York. Ritter was supported his The Royal City Band featuring Zachariah Hickman (bass, acoustic guitar, wurlitzer), Sam Kassirer (piano, organ, synthesizers, percussion), Josh Kaufman (guitar, synthesizer) and Ray Rizzo (drums, percussion).

“I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms,” said Ritter in a statement. “I still can’t tell what era these stories are from. They feel part roustabout, part psalm to me.”
