Singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur has announced that he will release part two of his 2013 album The Ballad of Boogie Christ, at the end of November.
The Ballad of Boogie Christ Act 2 comes as the second installment in a three-part series that is “loosely based around a character that’s either enlightened or insane, like all of us,” Arthur said in an interview with American Songwriter. “It’s a sonic landscape across the last few years of my life excavating material for my captors, though they were illusions, every last one of them.”
In addition to releasing a new album, Arthur has also published a series of poems, lyrics and art pieces in a new book I Miss the Zoo and Other Poetry Selections.
The Ballad of Boogie Christ Act 2 is out Nov. 29 via Lonely Astronaut.
