Josh Ritter to release Empty Hearts single + watch Letterman video + UK tour dates

The Historic Conquests of Josh Ritter

Josh Ritter had a successful year last year. A cult stateside hit, the singer/songwriter scored rave reviews for his live shows and wonderful album 'The Historic Conquests of Josh Ritter', which The Guardian hailed as one of the ultimate LPs of last year.

Now, the Idaho musician has announced his first UK live dates of 2008. Following a sold-out tour of Canada, the shows will feature a night at London's Bloomsbury Ballroom (March 31st).

As if that wasn't good enough, Josh will record a live session for Radio 2, which will be broadcast on the Bob Harris show, February 2nd.

His new single "Empty Hearts" is set for release March 24th, 2008 in the UK.
