Joan Shelley returns with "The Spur" her rst new album in three years. The twelve song set is
a profound meditation on light and darkness, recorded in the spring of 2021 at Earthwave
Farm in the Kentucky countryside. James Elkington serves as co-producer (alongside Shelley) and
the album features collaborations with Bill Callahan, Meg Baird and the British novelist Max
Porter along with Shelley's musical partner Nathan Salsburg.
