Damien Jurado’s ‘Where Shall You Take Me’ 10th Anniversay Reissue Out May 28, Stream Previously Unreleased Track

Here’s something we can all look forward to. The 10th anniversary reissue of Damien Jurado’s Where Shall You Take Me is available next Tuesday. For those of you who are not familiar with this work, know that the album is Damien’s fifth full-length, originally released in 2003. The double lp includes previously unreleased basement reel demos and the Just In Time For Something EP (never before released on vinyl). You can stream “Omaha” today and check out the track listing below. Pre-order at SC Distribution.

This reissue is also dedicated to Damien’s late label-mate, Jason Molina. “If it were not for Jason Molina, I may not have ended up on the Secretly Canadian record label. The guy practically twisted one arm behind my back, and with the other, walked me through the front door of where I am today. I am eternally grateful for the guidance, knowledge, influence, and inspiration he so graciously shared with me. The reissue of this album is dedicated to his life and legacy.”

Happy Almost Weekend // Damien Jurado Performs “Museum of Flight” & “Working Titles” Live for Last Call With Carson Daly


Earlier this year, Damien Jurado headlined Last Call with Carson Daly’s “Write The Night,” an event showcasing singer-songwriters performing acoustic sets at Los Angeles’s Troubador. We have the first two televised songs from Damien’s set. Watch Maraqopa‘s “Working Titles” and “Museum of Flight” above!

Oh and just because we like you (a lot), we’ll share a secret. Damien is currently working on the follow-up to Maraqopa. Where exactly is he doing this? You know – just at Richard Swift’s National Freedom studio, which can only mean Swifty is acting as both engineer and collaborator. Enjoy that bit of news as you head into your weekend…

Merry Christmas! Damien Jurado Shares New Holiday Song & Video

Tis the season! Damien Jurado has recorded his first original Christmas song. “Kalla Has” was created alongside Seattle musician Kyle Zantos, with strings performed by Sam Anderson. We also have a new video for the single! Directed by Christopher Harrell and starring Randall A. Walker, you can watch the clip above! Download the track for free at Soundcloud – link below. Happy holidays, folks!

DOWNLOAD “KALLA HUS”

Damien’s Maraqopa is listed at #6 on Rough Trade’s Top 10 Albums of 2012! They call the record a “real high water mark, a remarkable monument to the power of good, honest craft and artistic pursuit; an all too rare occurrence in this age of pop idols, reality stars and hype machine hipsters.”
