Justin Townes Earle to release Harlem River Blues in September

Bloodshot Records has announced a new album, Harlem River Blues, from the very dapper Justin Townes Earle, due this September. The recently relocated New Yorker was inspired by the Manhattan body of water that he recently described to Paste as “the most desolate thing I’d ever seen”. Earle enlisted help from former DBT member Jason Isbell in an attempt to move away from the old time folk and country sounds of his past two albums, The Good Life and last year’s excellent Midnight At The Movies, for something that evokes the soulful sounds of Memphis and Otis Redding. Should be interesting. No free download as of yet, but here’s a pair of older tunes in case you’ve missed out to this point:

MP3 :: Mama’s Eyes
MP3 :: What I Mean To You
(from Midnight At The Movies. Buy here)
