Today is album announce day and i finally get to share all the fun stuff.
I am excited to introduce all of you to my upcoming album – The Hurry and The Harm.
June 4th is the official release date around the world (May 31 in Australia & Germany and June 1 in every other European country). The iTunes pre-order will begin April 9 and will include an option for a deluxe version that includes 3 extra songs. (More info & links coming soon)
The support you all showed, for the first song I shared two weeks ago, “of space and time”, was overwhelming. Thank you!!! it means the world to me.
I had an amazing time recording The Hurry and The Harm in Nashville this winter. Alex Newport joined me as producer again and I couldn’t be prouder of the talented group of guys that joined me. Jack Lawrence played bass (and has since joined me on the road), Matt Chamberlain and James Gadson took turns on drums, Bo Koster worked the keys, Spencer Cullum Jr added pedal steel and both Anthony Lamarchina & Karen Winkelmann contributed to the string arrangement.
I never thought I’d want a picture of myself on the cover of a record, but here we are. I sent Dustin Rabin one of my favorite lyrics on the record and the album artwork was born:
“I’ve always been dark, with light somewhere in the distance”
Over the next few weeks more info will continue to follow. For now, I’m very excited to share this with everyone and grateful for all the years we’ve shared that led to this record.”
