Peter Mulvey Releases New Album 'There Is Another World'

Folk ambassador Peter Mulvey has been a singer, songwriter, road-dog, raconteur, and an almost-poet since before he can remember. With a career spanning nearly three decades, eighteen albums, and countless live performances worldwide, Mulvey has built his life's work on collaboration and on an instinct for the eclectic and the vital. Today he releases There Is Another World, his most vivid album yet, via Righteous Babe Records Purchase the album HERE.

Early in 2017, a series of upheavals found Mulvey living through the winter in a friend's empty house in the small midwestern town of Fort Atkinson. Unmoored and lost in the middle of his life, he spent hours each day walking along the frozen marsh of the Bark River and through the wintry oak savannah nearby. The songs came in fast and strange and emotional, which Mulvey transcribed during the night at a table in the vacant house. These songs became his new album, a powerful dreamscape of imagistic, haiku-like auditory sketches, within which are plenty of wrenching, haunting, and even sweet songs.

Produced by Todd Sickafoose (Ani DiFranco, Anais Mitchell, Andrew Bird), the thirteen track effort amounts to a remarkable, brief, potent stab which as been embraced by Billboard, Parade Magazine, and Folk Alley among others. Alienation, loss, and heartbreak; all are rendered lucid, even beautiful, in the bright-dark sideways light of deep winter. It is also a story of renewal, through close attention and a determined stillness, a piercing gaze toward detail and an opening toward simple acceptance of what is.
