Full Description

After two and a half years since his last release, Justin Townes Earle is back and pleased to announce his fifth studio album (and first ever on Vagrant Records).

Single Mothers is comprised of ten tracks that showcase exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana. As a recently married, sober man JTE writes from a point of maturity and content we’ve not seen before on past records.

"“One day I just realized it’s not cool to die young, and it’s even less cool to die after 30,”" Justin laughs as he reflects on a life past and his new found clarity.

What he'’s created is an album that’s raw, honest and personal.  Once compared to a man who wears many suits JTE has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally, in thirty-two short years.  Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, being born Steve Earle’s son and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell.

Single Mothers serves as the perfect platform for such narrations.

Short Description
  • Showing the world that alt-country can be pretty dope.

    — Noisey/ VICE
  • It’s a lifetime of pain and experience that makes for his most intimate album yet.

    — Consequence of Sound
  • And his phrasing, always nuanced, is more emotive than ever. It suggests a life where songs are the only painkillers that still work.

     
    — Rolling Stone
  • He's writing the kind of songs upon which he really can build one of the great, still-unfolding careers in American music.

    — Riverfront Times
