JD McPherson’s Newest Album is a Hit

“McPherson’s third and best set to date.” American Songwriter 

JD McPherson’s Undivided Heart & Soul is out now on New West Records and available on vinyl, compact disc, and digital format HERE. Co-produced by McPherson and Dan Molad (Lucius, Here We Go Magic) and recorded at the Historic RCA Studio B in Nashville, TN,Undivided Heart & Soul is McPherson’s first studio album in nearly three years and follows his critically acclaimed Let The Good Times Roll (2015). The highly anticipated new album released October 6, 2017 and debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 chart – reaching #1 for Top New Artist Albums and Americana/Folk Albums, as well as #4 for Top Independent Overall Albums, #5 for LP/Vinyl Albums, #27 for Top Current Albums, and #44 for Overall Digital. Mojo Magazine praises, “…McPherson’s horizon has never sounded so open,” and theAssociated Press exclaims, “JD McPherson’s ‘Undivided Heart & Soul’ deserves your undivided attention.” American Songwriter calls it “…McPherson’s third and best set to date” in a 4 out of 5 Star review, while Paste Magazine awards it an 8.1 out of 10 rating and notes, “…McPherson takes a slightly different approach, leaning harder on the first syllable of rockabilly.” Mother Jones adds, “JD McPherson has long been one of the more inventive artists with deep blues roots, thanks to a strong, expressive voice suited to a variety of genres and songs that tamper with familiar templates in subtly intriguing ways. On the exhilarating Undivided Heart & Soul, McPherson makes this implied versatility explicit, expanding his sonic palette to exciting effect…If the colorful pop tinges initially seem like a dramatic departure, McPherson never loses the greasy intensity that made him so compelling in the first place.” In celebration of the release, McPherson will appear on Conan tomorrow, Wednesday, October 25; and he is currently on an extensive North American tour, which includes dates with support from Nikki Lane and Nicole Atkins.
