Josh Ritter “Showboat” – Listen

The lovely Josh Ritter is back with his ninth full-length album ‘Gathering’ which comes out September 22nd on Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers. Ritter will be heading out with his “Royal City” band over the course of this winter, including a date at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on 5th December. Speaking of the album he said “I have been writing records for almost twenty years now. Each one has been different from the last in subject and form, but with Gathering I feel I’ve found a new electric dissatisfaction, a new way to rejoice as the storm rolls in”. Quite apt for today.  You can hear the first track Showboat below in the form of one of those nice singalonga lyric videos.
