We leave you on this windy Friday dear reader with news that Josh Ritter has announced the mini-album ‘See Here, I Have Built You a Mansion’, a collection of 8 rare or unreleased songs and performances from the last several years. Due out next Friday, Ritter says on his website: “I did the artwork a while back and the title just popped into my head. I’ve really been missing making music with my band and wanted to get this out asap. The pink marble vinyl is limited to 500 copies in that color, and I’ll sign a bunch of them, along with a bunch of the CDs, too. We made some really fun limited-edition merch to go with it.” You can pre-order some of that fun here, and in the meantime, here’s the first track to be released from it, ‘Time is Wasting’ which was apparently written for a movie but didn’t get used. Which proves there is no justice in the world and that as a constant some things never change. Have a good one.
