JOE HENRY is debuting a new song from his upcoming album Blood From Stars exclusively over at Spinner.com today. It's a great opportunity to download and listen to the moody shuffle of 'Death To The Storm' from his soon to be released album.
Blood From Stars, Henry’s 11th album and third for Anti- Records, charts a darker journey for the prolific singer, songwriter and producer. Undoubtedly influenced by two recent records he produced – Allen Toussaint’s The Bright Mississippi and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott’s A Stranger Here – Blood From Stars marries blues song form with jazz liberation; folk narrative with beat articulation. Henry has explored such genre confusion before, but never with more purpose. With simple characters that feel their way through fragmented narratives, the songs uphold Henry’s reputation as a truly poetic lyricist, creating an album that is as immediate as it is evocative.
Blood From Stars is out August 18th.
