'The Family' will be a conventional label release (Real World for UK/EU, True North for US/CAN), not through PledgeMusic as previously mentioned.

Joseph gave the following comments on the album in a recent interview while on tour with RNDM

"What’s the vibe on your new record? Is it more acoustic based?

It’s totally different. I got a piano. I found a Steinway 1912 Vertegrand piano that was in insane shape. Just beautiful. It was from 1912 so it had its wear and tear, but it was in just one family. I ended up getting it for a crazy deal. I got it tuned and wrote a set of songs on it. I had never really written much on piano before. I made the record by myself mostly. It was all about family dynamics. Every single song. I sang from different perspectives; from my grandfather to my father to my sister to my wife who doesn’t exist to my kids who don’t exist. It’s based off my experience, yet fictionalized in a way. It’s a concept record. It’s very modern and my original intention was to just make this lush piano record with no guitars or beats. I ended up cutting everything to drum machine grooves. Tchad Blake then made it sound insane. It’s a very futuristic singer-songwriter record. To me, it shows how I’m inspired in all different ways. I find art everywhere. ..."

Hi lanegan, thanks - the samples are also up on Amazon Digital section too!!


You can listen to the first single "You Keep Hanging On" on SoundCloud, etc

"You Keep Hanging On" by Joseph Arthur

The First Single and Focus Track from Joseph Arthur's forthcoming album, 'The Family',
being released on June 3rd, 2016 by True North Records (North America) and Real World Records (Rest of the World).



There are some glowing reviews coming in for this track straight away!

From Crave
""You Keep Hanging On" is a heartfelt, poignant rush of color and emotion worn on the sleeve - can't wait to hear the rest of this record."

From Jukebox Mixtape
"From the moment you hear Joseph Arthur’s gritty, affected vocals blast through the speakers on You Keep Hanging On, you instantly feel something. There’s a deep reverberating sorrow he conveys with just the simple turn of a melody. The understated track is atmospheric in nature, yet deeply melodic, and all of that comes together to form a cohesive experience that radiates hope. Arthur is by no means new to the music scene, he’s been releasing music since the 90’s, but there’s something special about this song that caught my attention. It’s poetry in motion. And that motion is a blur of emotion. Check out his new album, The Family, when it comes out June 3rd."

Another great review for the single "You Keep Hanging On" via The Revue

"(...) The first single, “You Keep Hanging On”, bears the same intimacy of his 2002 release, Redemption’s Son. It’s heartfelt and mellow, punctuated by his trademark falsetto on the chorus. If this single is any indication, this new album might be his best yet. (...)"


"You Keep Hanging On" has been getting airplay on WFUV,KCRW,KEXP,WFPK,WYEP and others. If you have a favourite radio station (or even if you don't!), send in your request for the track to be played.

A LOT can happen in a day!!

The Official Video for the new single "Machines Of War" has been set loose on YouTube - see link below

Joseph Arthur - Machines Of War (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

These are Joseph's comments on the track from the accompanying Press Release - “‘Machines of War’ wasn't meant to be a protest song but rather part of the greater story in ‘The Family’. It's sung from the perspective of my/one’s Grandfather going off to fly a fighter plane in World War Two. But as I wrote it and sung it I did start feeling the emotion of the personal loss war creates. The loss of war factors heavily in the overall story of ‘The Family’ and I felt that that obviously resonated with the current times.”


ALSO the full Album Premiere of 'The Family' is available to stream from today courtesy of The KEXP Blog - a week before release on June 3rd

--> The KEXP Blog | Album Premiere: Joseph Arthur – The Family


Enjoy and help spread the word :D

Mine arrived on the 1st via Real World. Only had the chance to give it a couple of listens so far but its already starting to grow. I think this one is maybe a bit of a slow burner (aren't they all). I'm weighing it against ghost riding which has been running on relative autoplay and think it will stack up really nicely. I'm hearing something new in every song on every new listen. I love the production! Jo's lead guitar work is mindblowing.....and so forth! All this bodes well for the tour and his eventual elevation to general secretary of the UN!
As ever I lack objectivity when it comes to Joseph - we're all part of the family!
