Joseph Arthur - Can't Exist Video

Joseph Arthur will be playing London’s 100 Club on May 25 and London Metro on May 31 in support of his forthcoming new album 'Our Shadows Will Remain'. Widely regarded as one of the most exciting and unique live performers in the US, these concerts mark the first time Arthur has played the UK since 2002 and follows recent tour dates with REM, Wilco and Coldplay in the US and continental Europe.

To co-incide with the London shows, Arthur will release a limited edition 7” single 'All Of Our Hands' on May 23 through 14th Floor Records. The second single 'Can't Exist' will follow on June 27 and the album Our Shadows Will Remain on July 4. A full UK tour commencing in July is to be announced shortly.

'Our Shadows Will Remain' has taken the US by storm since the album’s release in late 2004, with numerous inclusions on 'Best of 2004' lists at publications such as Entertainment Weekly, The Wall St. Journal, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Sun-Times and The New York Post. The album is the highly anticipated follow-up to Joseph Arthur's acclaimed 2002 recording, Redemption’s Son, the new recording is at once Arthur’s most concise, focused work to date, and arguably the one that most clearly reveals the breadth of his imagination. Arthur attributes much of the new album’s particularity to the context in which he wrote and recorded it.

Late last year, following the release of Redemption’s Son, Arthur chose to abandon the familiar surroundings in which he typically created his music - his apartment/home studio on East 22nd Street in Manhattan. He put virtually all of his belongings into a storage unit in New York and headed for New Orleans, taking not much more than his clothes, his guitar, and rough demos of 10 or 12 new songs. Seven or eight weeks later, Arthur had written some of the most ambitious and richly orchestrated songs of his career.

Since the release of his debut, Big City Secrets, Arthur has occupied a place among the most respected underground rock singer-songwriters.'
