One of my favorite singer-songwriters, John K. Samson of The Weakerthans, will be releasing a new album very soon. His first full length solo album, entitled Provincial, is set to debut this January 24th via Epitaph-Anti Records. The release will contain re-recorded tracks from Samson’s pair of solo EPs (City Route 85 and Provincial Road 222) as well as brand new songs. A preview video for the release as well as Samson’s upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
