"The Beast In Its Tracks," the new album from Idaho-raised singer-songwriter (and one of my favorites) Josh Ritter, will be released March 5

Of the record, Ritter said in a press release, "In the year after my marriage ended, I realized that I had more new songs than I'd ever had at one time. Far from the grand, sweeping feel of the songs on 'So Runs the World Away,' these new songs felt like rocks in the shoe, hard little nuggets of whatever they were, be it spite, remorse, or happiness."
