Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now, the new album from celebrated singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle, will be released March 27 on Bloodshot Records. This is Earle’s fourth release and follows his critically acclaimed 2010 album, Harlem River Blues, which debuted #47 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and led to a “Song of the Year” award at the 2011 Americana Music Awards. In celebration of the release, Earle will perform a series of special shows this winter followed by a full U.S. headlining tour this spring including an appearance at SXSW. Produced by Earle alongside longtime collaborator Skylar Wilson, the 10-track album was recorded completely live with no overdubs over a 4-day period at an old converted church recording studio in Asheville, NC.

This time I’ve gone in a Memphis-soul direction.” And that's true enough.
