This Week’s New River Music

Chris Cornell – “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart”

New Album: Higher Truth | Release Date: September 18, 2015

Higher Truth displays Chris Cornell’s constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman – telling human stories which transcend musical genres, and was inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles. The multi-grammy-winning Soundgarden lead will be in Boston this fall at the Shubert Theatre, Oct 21st.

George Ezra – “Listen To The Man”

New Album: Wanted On Voyage | Release Date: June 30, 2014

This is another single off George Ezra’s debut album (with hit singles “Budapest” and “Blame It On Me”). The music on the album was inspired by a train trip he took around Europe in 2013. He said tried to write about everything he saw and all the people he met. Also worth noting… this music video is adorable and co-stars Sir Ian McKellen.

Good Old War – “Tell Me What You Want From Me”
New Album: Broken Into Better Shape | Release Date: June 29, 2015

The trio from Philadelphia created their band name from words inside each respective member’s last name.​ The “least rock-‘n’-roll thing” they’ve done in the past year: 2 of the members, Keith and Tim, say they have changed an unthinkable amount of diapers. Good Old War play Port City Music Hall in Portland on September 11th. And the music video has clowns (figured we’d let you know ahead of time).

Jason Isbell – “24 Frames”

New Album: Something More Than Free | Release Date: July 17, 2015

Former member of the Drive By Truckers, Jason Isbell is from Alabama.  He and his wife, Amanda Shires (who plays violin and sings background on this album), have opened many times for their friend, John Prine. He says about 24 Frames: “It’s about having control and assuming that you have control over the things that go on in your life … and you know, you really don’t.”


Of Monsters and Men – “Empire”

New Album: Beneath The Skin | Release Date: June 8, 2015

This is off their newly released album, Beneath The Skin. They’ll play Boston Calling in September, and are touring North America for most of the fall season.

Nathaniel Rateliff  & The Nightsweats – “S.O.B.”

New Album: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats | Release Date: August 21, 2015

The Colorado band has been signed to Stax and will release their first album (self-titled) August 21st. Fresh from the Newport Folk Festival, they’ll play the Royale in Boston on November 5th.​
