“The song (with Josh Ritter & Bob Weir) pitches its tent midway between the country, gospel and soul camps, with thickly stacked harmonies that evoke the Dead’s own folk-rock classic American Beauty. Appropriately, Weir lends his warm, weathered voice to two verses. Behind him, a swirl of guitars, organ and brass turns the song into some sort of Americana hymn.” – Rolling Stone
Singer-songwriter Josh Ritter is getting set to release a new album which features a duet with the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir.
The song, written by Ritter, is called “When Will I Be Changed,” and will be on Ritter’s upcoming Gathering. Read more from Rolling Stone here.
Margo Price has announced that her sophomore album American Made will come out on October 20th. It follows up her 2016 debut Midwest Farmer’s Daughter. The first single from it is a song called “A Little Pain,” and you can hear it below.
