Pre-Order The Embers of Time on CD and LP, with exclusive T-shirt and Poster bundles


Now on pre-order: get Josh’s new record on CD and LP, and save 25% with exclusive T-shirt and poster bundles available only at the Yep Roc Store. All pre-orders come with several pre-release digital downloads. New tour dates were also announced, starting in late May – see all dates below.



The Embers of Time is one of the finest collections in a celebrated career that’s earned Josh Rouse plaudits everywhere from the NY Times to NPR. Album opener “Some Days I’m Golden All Night” finds comfort in accepting that there are no easy answers. The album’s laidback, countrypolitan vibe continues on “Too Many Things On My Mind,” which was inspired by economist E.F. Schumacher’s book Small Is Beautiful.

Simplification is a recurring theme on the album, as the pedal steel and harmonica drenched “New Young” finds Rouse “making plans to move out to the country,” and “Crystal Falls” is propelled by uncomplicated rhythm from an unexpected source.

The album is also available for pre-order at iTunes.
