Joseph Arthur To Release ‘Come Back World’ – First New Solo Album In Three Years On October 11th

It’s been three years since Joseph Arthur has released a brand-new solo album, and with the upcoming release of Come Back World (October 11th) he’s crafted his most personal and powerful album to date.

“The interesting parts of our stories aren’t the famous people we meet,” Arthur remarked. Or the times when everything is basically working. Or when we get to lay in comfort with a partner watching Netflix and the world go by.  The interesting parts are when all those things break down and you’re left in isolation to finally deal with the roots of whatever had been thwarting your existence all along. The interesting parts are when the world has turned its back on you and you have turned your back on it or them. When darkness could seemingly swallow you whole if it hasn’t already. When there is no such thing as hope and so you manufacture it from a dream which only angle is to survive. Come Back World is an album about rebirth and survival.”

The title track “Come Back World” will be available on all major streaming services beginning this Friday, August 2nd.  Today you can listen to it below…


Produced by Joseph Arthur and Chris Seefried, the upcoming release features several other amazing artists including: Ben HarperPatrick Carney,Jesse Malin and Greg Dulli.

Joseph Arthur will embark on a solo tour right on top of the release date beginning in Kansas City on October 4th.  For many of these upcoming shows, he’ll be joined by Jesse Malin who will co-headline.  Tickets for all shows will go on sale this Friday.

Over the course of his career to date, Joseph has released fourteen albums under his own name, eleven official EP’s and has been involved with several high-profile side projects including last year’s collaboration with Peter Buck under the name Arthur BuckFistful Of Mercy (with Ben Harper & Dhani Harrison), and RDNM with Jeff Ament and Richard Stuverud.
