Canadian alt-folkies Cowboy Junkies are back with a new studio album that’s due to be released in June, a 10-song collection called Such Ferocious Beauty — which is the group’s fourth album since ending a six-year break in recording in 2018.
The band — Margo Timmins, Michael Timmins, Peter Timmins and Alan Anton — will release the new album June 2 on Cooking Vinyl. It can be pre-ordered now on CD, vinyl and digital formats (Amazon.com, Apple Music).
The first track to be released off the album — “What I Lost” — can be heard below via its music video.
Of that video, Michael Timmins writes:
“The new video was created by brother Pete and features our Dad as well as some super 8 footage of our Dad and Mom and family from the late 50’s and early 60’s. It’s an intense video for an intense song about an intense subject.”
The group also talks about the new song on the latest episode of their podcast “Music Is The Drug.”
