Josh Ritter: It’s That Time

Josh Ritter’s new CD, So Runs the World Away, comes out May 4th.  An advance copy has come my way — and I play it so often it’s wrecking my life. Not kidding. These songs are urgent and beautiful, worldly and ethereal — they grab hard and don’t let go. Readers who live in cities where Josh and the Royal City Band will be playing and don’t snap up tickets now are going to feel extremely silly later. But don’t listen to me; do listen to ‘Change of Time.’
