John Prine Premieres Spotify Singles

John Prine's Spotify Singles is premiering today-listen HERE. The session was produced by Dave Cobb at RCA Studio A and includes a new version of Prine's "I Have Met My Love Today" as well as a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You"-both featuring special guests The Secret Sisters.

The original version of "I Have Met My Love Today" is from Prine's critically acclaimed new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, which recently debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 54,000 equivalent albums sold in its first week-a career high chart position and sales week for the legendary singer, songwriter and performer. The album also debuted at #1 on Billboard's Americana/Folk Albums chart, #2 on Billboard's Country Albums chart and #2 on Billboard's Rock Albums chart.

Released on his own independent label, Oh Boy Records, the album is Prine's first album featuring new material in over 13 years and was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb (purchase/stream here).

In celebration of the album, Prine's extensive nationwide tour is currently underway including a newly confirmed New Year's Eve show at Nashville's Opry House withNathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats and special guest Iris DeMent. Of his recent sold out show at Radio City Music Hall, Rolling Stone declares, "...a night of joy and love at one of the most biggest shows of the veteran singer-songwriter's career." All 2018 shows are now on-sale. See below for complete details. Every concert ticket sold will include a copy The Tree of Forgiveness (CD only).

Recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A, the album includes ten new songs written by Prine along with co-writers Pat McLaughlin, Roger Cook, Dan Auerbach, Keith Sykes,David Ferguson and Phil Spector. Along with Prine (lead vocals and acoustic guitar), Cobb (acoustic guitar, mellotron, claps, kazoo) and Prine's longtime band, the album features special guests Brandi Carlile (harmony vocals on tracks 2, 4, 10), Jason Isbell (electric guitar on track 7, slide guitar and background vocals on track 9, 10) and Amanda Shires (fiddle and background vocals on track 9, background vocals on track 10).

A two-time Grammy-winner, Prine is among the English language's premier phrase-turners. Almost 50 years into a remarkable career that has drawn effusive praise from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and others who would know, Prine is a smiling, shuffling force for good. He is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member and a PEN New England Lyrics Award recipient whose classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized as part of the Recording Academy's Grammy Hall of Fame and whose songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Carly Simon, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band and many others.

Following the 2015 death of his friend and business partner Al Bunetta, Prine is now President and sole owner of Oh Boy Records. He lives in Nashville, TN with his wife, Fiona, and enjoys spending time with their three sons, a daughter-in-law and his grandchildren.
