Veteran troubadour Damien Jurado will drop a new album on the world in February. According to the Secretly Canadian press release, the Richard Swift-produced Maraqopa finds Jurado branching out a bit from his well-worn folk style. One listen to the promising first single “Nothing Is the News” makes this pretty evident – the extended jazzy guitar playing veers this one into a brave new psyche-folk world.
