Ray LaMontagne will release his 4th album, God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise on August 17th and I have his first single. The slow chugging "Beg, Steal or Borrow" is more of the same: Ray's scruffy voice and acoustic guitar, some slide guitar for layers and a simple beat to keep the song moving. I am bit interested to hear the rest of the album because Ray chose to produce this record himself, leaving his regular producer Ethan Johns behind.
Even more exciting is the double bill of David Gray & Ray LaMontagne that will play a string of dates this summer. For a complete list of dates go here. Those of you lucky enough to get a ticket for the SOLD OUT Chicago show should get a good dose of new music. Along with this album comes news that David Gray will release his new album, Foundling on the same day! Without further to do, the latest from Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs.
