On April 26, Josh Ritter will follow his 2017 album Gathering with his new record Fever Breaks, one of the releases we're most looking forward to in April. Earlier this month, Ritter, along with guitarist Josh Kaufman, shared three more then-unreleased Fever Breaks tunes with the world in the Paste Studio: "All Some Kind of Dream," "Losing Battles" and "Blazing Highway Home," plus the aforementioned "Old Black Magic." Fever Breaks, Ritter's 10th studio effort, was produced by Jason Isbell and features his band The 400 unit. They recorded the album at RCA Studios in Nashville. Ritter said during the session he chose the songs for this album based on "a desire to make a record that felt like it reflected the moment we're in."
