Josh Ritter announced March 5 as the the release date for his latest record, The Beast In Its Tracks.
In a statement, Ritter wrote: “I wrote and recorded this record in the 18 months after my marriage had fallen apart— my broken heart wasn’t unique. But writing these songs was helping me get through the night and I didn’t have the strength to question or care.”
As can be deduced, The Beast In Its Tracks promises to be a highly personal and emotional record. As an added bonus, Ritter has allowed fans to stream a track from the album. Listen to “Joy To You Baby.”
