"While the familiar ache still haunts Single Mothers, Earle treats it with new wisdom, choosing instead to ramble forward, rather than perseverate and drift waywardly back." — Paste

After 21/2 years since his last release, Justin Townes Earle is back and pleased to announce his fifth studio album (and first ever on Vagrant Records). Titled Single Mothers, the record was co-produced with Adam Bednank and recorded live. The companion piece, Absent Fathers, is scheduled to be released in January 2015.

Single Mothers is comprised of 10 tracks that showcase exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of contemporary Americana music. 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 in a way he hasn t touched upon since his debut EP, Yuma.

Once compared to a man who wears many suits JTE has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally, in 32 short years. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, being born Steve Earle's son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, 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.
