Valerie June's "Near-Perfect Front To Back" (Rolling Stone) New Album 'The Order Of Time' Out Now

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Valerie June's highly anticipated new album 'The Order of Time' is out today via Concord Records. The follow-up to 2013's breakthrough album 'Pushin' Against A Stone,' has already drawn broad international acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, New York Times, NPR Music, The Guardian, Vice Noisey, Garden & Gun, Okayplayer, MOJO, UNCUT, Entertainment Weekly and many more.

Produced by Matt Marinelli, 'The Order of Time' blends southern sounds, African rhythms and ambient atmospherics into an absorbing, soulful reflection on love, family, struggle and the passing of time. Expanding on the electric tones of its predecessor, June infused the new album with wide-open, ethereal soundscapes; an intimate, inviting backdrop for these richly detailed character studies and her one-of-a-kind voice.

An early contender for album of the year, 'The Order of Time' has been met with immediate and widespread acclamation. The Guardian's 4-STAR review affirmed, "The album finds June full of childlike wonderment amid a gloriously ethereal atmosphere reminiscent of Van Morrison's 'Astral Weeks.' Fantastic stuff." Rolling Stone asserted, "Near-perfect front to back, its politics are subtle and sly, mostly implicit and matter-of-fact, transmitted through sketches of lovers and other strugglers." Okayplayer called June "A true star in the making," and NPR Music declared, "Each of these songs are suffused with nostalgia or idealism that's also strikingly grounded."
