Josh Ritter Announces Jason Isbell-Produced New Album, <i>Fever Breaks</i>

Prolific Americana singer-songwriter Josh Ritter has announced his tenth studio album Fever Breaks, due April 26 from Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers. The announcement also comes with the release of its bluesy lead single, “Old Black Magic.”

Ritter’s 10 new tracks were recorded at RCA Studios in Nashville, and produced by Jason Isbell. The forthcoming album will also feature support from Isbell’s band, The 400 Unit. Ritter has been an enduring presence as a singer-songwriter, and the new collaboration with the Grammy Award-winning Isbell is telling of how tuned-in he is to the genre’s modern landscape.

Below, listen to “Old Black Magic” and see when you can catch Ritter on tour, where he will be accompanied by the Royal City Band, and watch his full 2017 Paste Studio session while you’re at it.
