Thank you, BBC Radio 6 Music, for the kind words and making In The Shape Of A Storm your album of the day! "Our Album Of Day is Damien Jurado's In The Shape Of A Storm. The Seattle songwriter's 14th LP is an intimate, yet romantic affair that swoons with love and longing as its starkly beautiful tunes gently weave across a tender emotional spectrum". Loose Music Mama Bird Recording Co. You can buy the album here: smarturl.it/intheshapeofastorm

Thank you Erin Osmon of Pitchfork for the beautiful and moving praise for "In the Shape of a Storm". ❤️ "It’s impossible to listen to In the Shape of a Storm without also thinking of the late Richard Swift, Jurado’s longtime producer and friend, who died in July 2018. The record’s intimacy feels like a candle held in Swift’s honor, a testament to their bond. Last December, Jurado participated in a collaborative tribute performance of Richard Swift’s final album The Hex; he was the only performer to break down in audible sobs, alone onstage with just his acoustic guitar. In the Shape of a Storm is an album’s worth of that feeling. In grief many cloak themselves in distractions, or hide away entirely: Jurado treats it as an invitation to look closer, feel deeper. “Time does not heal,” he sings resolutely on “Silver Ball.” It reads like a lament, but Jurado sings it like a promise. Recounting his highs and lows with stark clarity, Jurado has never been more resonant."

“Lincoln”, written in 1998, was originally slated for my third album not yet titled, 'Ghost of David'. I had 13 songs recorded for the album onto a newly purchased digital 8-track machine. And, when the day came to mix the finished album, an error done on my part was made, erasing everything. Now under a deadline with the label to turn in a new album, I came up with the bright idea to scrap every song I had written for the album, and start anew. All original material was written, and then recorded in a period of less than a week for 'Ghost of David'. Years later, I would come across the only recorded demo I had made for the original album on a cassette. This song was “Lincoln”. Over the years, I considered “Lincoln” for many of my albums, but the song just couldn’t find the proper place to land. That was until I went in to record my latest album, 'In the Shape of a Storm'. It felt not only fitting to put it on the record, but to have it be the opening song.
