Justin Townes Earle Announces New Album ‘Absent Fathers’ + European Tour Dates


This September brought us Justin Townes Earle’s much anticipated fifth studio album – Single Mothers. We can now reveal our little secret – Single Mothers has a sequel, to be released on 12th January 2015. Comprised of 10 tracks, Absent Fathers was recorded alongside Single Mothers as a double album, but then as Justin began to sequence it, he felt each half needed to make its own statement and the two parts took on their own identities.

For those who fear we’ve neglected the vinyl options, no, no, no – it’s all part of a greater plan. We will be releasing both albums together as a specially packaged double gatefold vinyl LP to coincide with the release of Absent Fathers. What a treat.

All we need now is a nice list of European tour dates. Well, what d’you know…
