Eric recorded ‘Til Your River Runs Dry’ in New Orleans across 2010 with further work done in California in 2011.

“I started feeling that I needed to use this album as a catharsis, to express my own truth,” Eric said in a statement. “It took longer than any other album, not because of time spent in the studio, but because of the subject matter of the songs I wanted to put out there,” Eric explains. The result is a deeply intimate, honest self-portrait as well as unsparing look at religion, politics and the environment. “During the making of this record, we lost Bo Diddley, one of my greatest influences. There were many things I would have said to him, if I’d realized that his time was limited.”

Eric is listed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time. Bruce Springsteen paid homage to Eric at SXSW this year. Eric joined Bruce and the E Street Band on stage in Austin to perform ‘We Gotta Get Out Of This Place’.

‘Til Your River Runs Dry’ will be released through ABKCO on September 18.

The first single is Memorial Day. Listen to it here.
