After more than 75 film and television placements and several internationally chart topping singles and albums, Joshua Radin returns with his much-anticipated new release The Rock and The Tide out October 12 on Mom + Pop Music. The 12-song set marks the follow-up to 2008′s Simple Times, which earned Radin widespread praise and a #1 spot on iTunes. Following the release, Radin will embark on a nationwide tour. Full tour dates are listed below.
The Rock and The Tide is Radin’s third album and Joshua is celebrating the approaching release date by unveiling one “making-of” style webisode about the record each week leading up to October 12th. You can watch the first one on Joshua’s Facebook and Myspace. The second webisode premiered this week on AOL.
Joshua Radin’s celebrated 2006 debut We Were Here garnered a 4-star review in Rolling Stone. His success grew with the release of Simple Times, with the Sunday Times proclaiming it “refreshingly honest,” and praising his “soft spoken finger-picked songs…their lilt and melodic simplicity recalling James Taylor and Paul Simon’s early solo releases.” Radin has performed on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live and more. His songs can be heard in countless films, commercials and TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy, House, Scrubs and American Idol.
Radin has also achieved massive success outside the U.S., selling over 5,000 downloads through iTunes in the U.K. with no publicity or physical release. Radin’s organic expansion enabled him to sell out London’s Shepherds Bush Empire without a song on the radio, and to subsequently sign, outside of the U.S., to 14th Floor Records, home to such troubadours as Damien Rice and Ray LaMontagne. Not surprisingly, when Simple Times was physically released in the U.K. it quickly became a top 10 album with his single reaching #2 on the charts. Radin is currently top 10 on radio in 10 countries.
Produced by Martin Terefe (Train, Jason Mraz, Martha Wainwright), The Rock and The Tide is Joshua Radin’s second release with Mom + Pop Music. The independent label was launched in 2008 by Cliff Burnstein and Peter Mensch of Q Prime (The Black Keys, Muse) as well as A&R executive Michael Goldstone. Joshua Radin was the first artist signed to the label.
The Rock and The Tide is now available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. Limited edition pre-order packages of the album are also available on JoshuaRadin.com.
