Following the success of his critically-acclaimed-fifth-studio-album, Single Mothers, Justin Townes Earle is pleased to announce the release of the companion album, Absent Fathers. Comprised of 10 tracks, Absent Fathers was recorded alongside Single Mothers as a double album, but as Justin began to sequence it, he felt each half needed to make its own statement and they took on their own identities.Absent Fathers will be released on 13th January 2015. A complete track list can be found below.
Single Mothers was released in September 2014 and, combined with Absent Fathers, the double album perfectly showcases exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of contemporary Americana.
Hailed as an album that's "showing the world that alt-country can be pretty dope," (Noisey/Vice), Single Mothers has also had great radio success, with plays across the BBC. Justin recently wrapped up a run of US headlining dates, is currently on the road in Australia and New Zealand and is coming back to the UK and Europe in January/February 2015.
