Josh Ritter just announced that he has a new record coming out on October 16th entitled Sermon on the Rocks. There are some great pre-order options, including early delivery and some home recordings — you can check everything out here.
Click through to NPR’s site to stream the first single. It’s a song about a problematic teenage girl who is sent to a special religious school to get things sorted out.
Things do not go as planned.
And the song is great, if for no other reason than the fact that it contains the line, “turn the other cheek / take no chances / Jesus hates your high school dances”.
Look “up” one post for a mix that includes this song as well as some others that just might be worth your time and attention.
RIYL: Ryan Adams, Van Morrison, good music, great great music
