Renowned singer, songwriter, musician, artist and best-selling author Josh Ritter will release his anticipated new album, Spectral Lines, April 28 via Thirty Tigers.

Produced by Ritters longtime collaborator Sam Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Langhorne Slim), Spectral Lines finds Ritter expanding beyond the bounds of his previous work to create a record both atmospheric and profound. Dedicated to the memory of his mother, Ritter searches for commonality across these ten seamless tracks by exploring lifes most universal ideaslove, devotion and what it means to be connected, to both each other and to ourselves.

I think its important for us to share some of our most basic and common experiences with each other, however we can. Thats what we really, really need right now. I know we have common experiences, and its important to telegraph those back because they dont have to be lonely experiences. - Josh Ritter

One of todays most thoughtful and prolific voices, Ritter has released ten studio albums including 2019s widely acclaimed, Fever Breaks, of which NPR Music praised, He remains a hydrant of ideas while embodying an endless capacity for empathy and indignation, often within a single song. In addition to his work as a musician, Ritter is also a national best-selling author, having released two novels to date: 2011s Brights Passage and 2021s The Great Glorious Goddamn of It All, for which the film rights have recently been optioned for development. Released to critical attention, Stephen King wrote in The New York Times Book Review that Brights Passage shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his primeThis is the work of a gifted novelist.

In celebration of the new record, Ritter and his band, the Royal City Band, will return to the road in spring 23 with headline shows at Chicagos Thalia Hall, Nashvilles historic Ryman Auditorium, Washington, DCs Lincoln Theatre, Philadelphias Keswick Theatre, Bostons House of Blues and New Yorks Beacon Theatre among others.
