After two and a half years since his last release, Justin Townes Earle has announced his fifth studio album (and first on his new label Vagrant Records).  Entitled Single Mothers, the record will be released in Australia September 5 on Warner Music.

The Australian editions – CD, download and vinyl – will feature a bonus live acoustic version of the track “White Gardenias” which can be viewed on-line here.

Single Mothers has ten tracks and, as a recently married, sober man, Earle writes from a different point of maturity and content not seen before on past records.  “One day I just realized it’s not cool to die young, and it’s even less cool to die after 30,” Justin laughs as he reflects on a life past and his new-found clarity.

According to Earle’s website:

“Once compared to a man who wears many suits, JTE has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally, in thirty-two short years.  Between releasing four full length, critically acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell.  Single Mothers serves as the perfect platform for such narrations”.

 

Earle will tour the U.S. throughout September and October 2014 to promote Single Mothers.
