I guess this has been a Joe Henry week. First, I pick up his last release in the used bins in Chicago, then the 100’s perform “King’s Highway” at the Springville show on Saturday (the review and photos for this show will be coming soon) and now the news that Joe Henry is releasing his first solo album since 2003’s Tiny Voices. Apparently this was announced back in May, but I hadn’t noticed this until CMJ posted about it this weekend.
This is the second release on Anti- and is titled Civilians. Henry is assisted by Loudon Wainwright III, Van Dyke Parks, Bill Frisell and Patrick Warren. It looks like Joe might be doing some touring for this album, too.
