"Harlan Man" Digital Single to Benefit Wisconsin's Workers

In support of the protests of public worker unions in Wisconsin and elsewhere, Steve Earle has released the songs, "Harlan Man" and "The Mountain" as a special 2-track digital single with all profits benefiting The America Votes Labor Unity Fund via SaveWorkers.org.  Originally appearing on Earle's critically acclaimed 1999 bluegrass album with the Del McCoury Band, The Mountain,  both "Harlan Man" and "The Mountain" depict life as a card-carrying union miner.  "Harlan Man" features the lyric "I'm a union man, just like my daddy and all my kin, I took a union stand, no matter what the company said, I got me two good hands, and just as long as I'm able I won't give in"  The digital b-side, "The Mountain," is a longtime live favorite at Steve Earle performances.  The digital single is available now via iTunes HERE

 

"Unions are a fundamental component of Democracy throughout the free world.  All eyes are on Wisconsin," stated Steve Earle. 

 

The America Votes Labor Unity Fund is the fiscal agent of the AFL-CIO State Unity Fund, a special account of the AFL-CIO and directed by a broad coalition of national labor organizations to promote fair labor-management relations in the private and public sectors and defend workers and their unions against state legislation, ballot measures and executive orders that are aimed at undermining or destroying organizing and bargaining rights and unemployment standards.   In states like Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana, Republican legislatures are moving to strip middle class workers of their collective bargaining rights.  The America Votes Labor Unity Fund united labor organizations, allied progressive groups and individuals to fight for workers -- on the ground and on the airwaves.   Contributions help activists campaign in 11 states: Florida, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin. 

The America Votes Labor Unity Fund accepts donations from labor organizations and individuals who donate on their own behalf.  Please visit www.saveworkers.org for details on making a donation. 

Steve to release "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive" April 26th!

Steve Earle is set to release I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive on April 26th via New West Records.  The album is the anticipated follow up to the Grammy Award winning 2009 releaseTownes.  The 11-track set was produced by T Bone Burnett and is Earle's first collection of original material since his 2007 Grammy Award winning, Washington Square Serenade.  I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive will be available as a single compact disc, deluxe CD/DVD set, digitally, as well as 180 gram vinyl. 

 

Writing for I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive began three years ago, the longest span of any song cycle in Steve Earle's career.  The first two compositions were "God Is God" and "I Am A Wanderer," two songs written by Earle for Joan Baez' 2008 album, Day After Tomorrow(which Earle also produced).  The album also includes the celebrated song "This City," written for the HBO Original Series, Treme, which Earle also appeared in as an actor.  This year, Earle will be reprising his role of Harley during many episodes of Treme's second season.  "This City" features horn arrangements by Allen Toussaint and has garnered a Grammy Award Nomination in the Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media Category.  Additionally, the song also garnered Earle's first Emmy Award nomination in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics Category. I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive also features "Heaven or Hell," a duet with Earle's wife, the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Allison Moorer.


"They are all, as far as I can tell, about mortality in one way or the other; death as a mystery rather than a punctuation mark or at least, a comma rather than a period," Earle comments on the songs in the album liner notes. 

 

Earle's long anticipated debut novel of the same name, I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, will be published on May 12th by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  The novel imagines the troubled life of Doc Ebersole as he is haunted by the ghost of his former patient and friend, Hank Williams.  Thomas Cobb, author of Crazy Heart, stated "This is an impressive debut novel.  The characters are unforgettable, and the plot moves like a fast train.  A fantastic mixture of hard reality and dark imagination."  The title of both Steve Earle's new album and debut novel is taken from the Hank Williams song by the same name; the last single released during his lifetime in 1952.  

 

After many years of touring solo and acoustically worldwide, Steve Earle will be touring in support of the album with his highly celebrated, electric live band The Dukes (and Duchesses) featuring Allison Moorer. 

A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Earle quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others.  1986 saw the release of his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and immediately established the term "New Country."  What followed was an extremely exciting and varied array of releases including the biting hard rock of Copperhead Road (1988), the minimalist beauty of Train A Comin' (1995), the politically charged masterpiece, Jerusalem (2002), and the Grammy Award Winning albums The Revolution Starts...Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007) and Townes (2009).  I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is Steve Earle's 14th Studio Album.
