Friday Freebie: Justin Townes Earle - Kids In the Streets Singles Pack + NoiseTrade Acoustic Sessions

We're pretty excited about the upcoming album from Justin Townes Earle. The man just doesn't release bad music. Hell, the man doesn't release anything mediocre. His new album, Kids In the Street, is due out on May 26. To get us excited for the new album, or even just to tide us over, he's offering the first three singles for a free download through NoiseTrade. Plus, there are three additional live recordings from his PledgeMusic sessions thrown in for fun. 

The new songs reflect some changes in Earle's life. Since his last album, 2014's double shot of Single Mothers and Absent Fathers, Earle has gotten married and is about to become a father. Kids In the Street shows his growth as a songwriter. Instead of looking into himself, the songs look out into the world around him. Plus, he's letting his blues and soul influences out in these songs. It's not a huge change in sound. Kids In the Street fits right in with Earle's discography of country/folk releases, but it's just enough of a change to keep his sound interesting.

You can get your copy of Kids In the Street Singles Pack + PledgeMusic Acoustic Sessions (not exactly a catchy title, but accurate) for free at NoiseTrade. Kids In the Streets will be released on May 26 via New West. The album can be pre-ordered via PledgeMusic. For more on Justin Townes Earle, check out his website.
