Our Shadows Will Remain is the highly anticipated follow-up to Joseph Arthur’s acclaimed 2002 recording, Redemption’s Son. The new recording is at once Arthur’s most concise, focused work to date, and arguably the one that most clearly reveals the breadth of his imagination. Arthur attributes much of the new album’s particularity to the context in which he wrote and recorded it. Late last year, following the release of Redemption’s Son, Arthur chose to abandon the familiar surroundings in which he typically created his music - his apartment/home studio on East 22nd Street in Manhattan. He put virtually all of his belongings into a storage unit in New York and headed for New Orleans, taking not much more than his clothes, his guitar, and rough demos of 10 or 12 new songs. Seven or eight weeks later, Arthur had written some of the most ambitious and richly orchestrated songs of his career.

Since the release of his debut, Big City Secrets, Arthur has occupied a place among the most respected underground rock singer-songwriters. That album provoked Alternative Press to call him, ‘O ne of the last true artists left in the world. ’ Entertainment Weekly named Arthur’s second album, Come To Where I’m From, the No.1 album of 2000. In The UK, Uncut wrote, ‘a musician who weaves words, guitars and a whole heap of discordant sounds into songs that hang around head long after they finish. An American original.’ Whilst Dazed & Confused declared, ‘Awesome… beautifully crafted songs in the vein of Tom Waits.’ His critical profile was raised further with the release of Redemption’s Son, which made numerous critics’ ' Best of 2002 ' lists, t he Sunday Times deemed the album ‘ A classic.’
