The singer-songwriter wrote the tune during recording sessions for his 2017 album Gathering
Josh Ritter has released a new song called 'Heaven Knows'.
The acoustic track, originally written during the sessions for his 2017 album Gathering, is about trying to be better. "Patience, please have patience / Give me just a little more time", he croons over a peaceful guitar strum. It features Josh Kaufman on slide. Kaufman is a friend and collaborator of Ritter's and has worked with the likes of The National, Craig Finn, The Hold Steady, The War on Drugs and Lisa Hannigan.
Ritter was inspired to release the track now as he prepares to embark on an intimate solo tour across the United States, dedicated to special venues like old theatres, cathedrals and synagogues.
