Justin Townes Earle: New Album & Tour Dates


Justin Townes Earle
Bloodshot Records is pleased to announce the impending release of Harlem River Blues, the third full-length from Justin Townes Earle. The record, in stores September 14, is the much-anticipated follow-up to 2009’s Midnight at the Movies.

Compared to the much-lauded Midnight at the Movies, Harlem River Blues is more mature and increasingly nuanced, while still embracing the raw voice and clean sound of previous standout tracks like “Mama’s Eyes.” Featuring guest appearances from Jason Isbell, Bryn Davies and Calexico’s Paul Niehaus, it’s rockin’ and reelin’ at times, sweet and slow at others – and it’s great. Like good fried chicken, a well-cut suit and a hand made guitar, there’s heaven to be found in the beautifully crafted simpler things.
