Eighth Studio album The Saint Of Lost Causes finds American roots troubadour Justin Townes Earle an artist who is unflinching and unequivocal in his truth. When writing this album, Earle focused on a different America - the disenfranchised and the downtrodden, the oppressed and the oppressors, the hopeful and the hopeless. There’s the drugstore-cowboy-turned-cop-killer praying for forgiveness on track ‘Appalachian Nightmare’ and the common Michiganders persevering through economic and industrial devastation on ‘Flint City Shake It’; the stuck mother dreaming of a better life on the right side of the California tracks on ‘Over Alameda’ and the Cuban man in New York City, weighed down by a world of regret - ‘Ahi Esta Mi Nina’ We find the ‘used up’ soul desperate to get to New Orleans on ‘Ain’t Got No Money’ and the ‘sons of bitches’ in West Virginia poisoning the land and sea on ‘Don’t Drink The Water’. These are individuals and communities in every corner of the country, struggling through the ordinary - and sometimes extraordinary - circumstances of everyday life.
2LP Indies only format is on split metallic gold / yellow coloured vinyl
