Seattle-born and recently Los Angeles-relocated singer/songwriter Damien Jurado is releasing his fourteenth studio album, In the Shape of a Storm, on April 12 via Mama Bird Recording Co.
Recorded in just two hours, the record is a stripped-down effort featuring just Jurado and his guitar. Today, he’s shared the compassionate third single off the record, “Throw Me Now Your Arms.” It follows lead single “South” and the 20-year-old previously-lost “Lincoln.”
In the Shape of a Storm follows last year’s The Horizon Just Laughed. Below, listen to “Throw Me Now Your Arms” and watch Jurado’s KEXP in-studio performance from 2012.
