Justin Townes Earle's Fifth Album On Way


After two and a half years since his last release, Justin Townes Earle has announced his fifth studio album Single Mothers (his first for Vagrant Records) to be released nationwide on September 9, 2014. Earle will be on the road in the US throughout September and early October to support.

“One day I just realized it’s not cool to die young, and it’s even less cool to die after 30,” reflected the recently married (and now sober) Earle on a life past and his new found clarity. The new album is claimed to be as raw, honest and personal in a way he hasn’t touched upon since his debut EP, Yuma.

The dates announced for Earle’s tour leave room for him to appear at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in early October. It also leaves the possibility of an Australian or European tour for August.
