Joseph Arthur’s Redemption’s Son out today

The 15th Anniversary re-issue of Joseph Arthur's 'Redemption's Son' album is out today.

Available as 2CD and 2LP (the first time on vinyl) as well as digitally everywhere.

As well as the original album, this new release comes with nine previously unreleased songs, which now form a ‘lost album’ which Arthur has named Morning Star.

"We decided to turn these tracks into their own album called 'Morning Star' rather than a collection of this that and the other thing. It's a great feeling when the past burps up a gift. Things forgotten and submerged by the vortex of time which reveals its illusions through a process such as this."

    Joseph Arthur

    Released 09 June 2002

    Joseph Arthur’s third album is a consistently inspired, occasionally frazzled, and often startlingly beautiful album. It's the kind of record with which you can build a slow, sustainable love affair. Its rich textures, vulnerability, and acute, poetic lyrics are guaranteed to slacken jaws and raise goose bumps.
