Cris Jacobs’s New Album ‘One Of These Days’

Out April 26, 2024

Single Out Now “Work Song (I Can Still Sing)”

Cris Jacobs returns on April 26, 2024 with One Of These Days, the first album in five years from the highly regarded singer, songwriter and guitarist.

Jacobs has enlisted a cavalcade of amazing artists/friends to contribute to the recording of One Of These Days, starting with Jerry Douglas who produced the album and added some masterful playing. The Infamous Stringdusters (Travis Book, Andy Falco, Jeremy Garrett, Andy Hall and Chris Pandolfi) serve as the incredible house band with special guests that include Lindsay Lou, Lee Ann Womack, Billy Strings, Sam Bush and The McCrary Sisters.

The Baltimore native penned the eleven new tracks all rooted in a foundation of folk, blues, gospel and bluegrass with a contemporary tone. Listen to his new track “Work Song (I Can Still Sing)”, featuring Lou.

Writing the new songs was a cathartic process for Jacobs. Following the pandemic, like so many, he found himself dealing with a difficult bout of depression, but he sought help and took up meditation. He came through it and, in doing so, realized that, aside from his family, creating music gave him a sense of purpose and thus reignited his drive. He wrote all songs in his barn with just himself and a guitar and the process was affirming. As he says in the closing track “Everybody’s Lost”:

Every little person carry little hurt, some burdens ain’t easy to see / Everybody’s lost, everybody’s lost / Everybody’s flyin a little blind through the night, oh baby shine a light on me.

All tracks were recorded live to capture the palpable energy of the sessions.

Given the low place that has inspired the lyrics, the instant attractiveness of the single and the stellar accompaniment, this album is highly anticipated.
