After getting my hands on new albums from Villagers, Divine Comedy, Drive-By Truckers, the National, the Hold Steady, and many more, I wasn’t quite sure what to look forward to for the rest of 2010. Luckily, there’s still a few more great albums on the way (Justin Townes Earle’ Harlem River Blues, Drive-By Truckers Go Go Boots, and the new Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit record to name a few). So now I’m even more delighted that Academy Award winner Ryan Bingham is back with a new album in September.
It’ll be under the moniker Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses, and is called Junky Star. It’s due out in America on Lost Highway on September 7th, so expect it on the 4th in Ireland. It’s produced by T-Bone Burnett, who was also responsible for that excellent Oscar winning song ‘The Weary Kind’.
You can also hear two new songs from the album on Bingham’s MySpace:
