NEW YORK, NY. (Top40 Charts/ Columbia Records) - "Unclear Sky," a four song pre-album teaser of newly recorded, previously unreleased and fan favorite tunes from emerging singer-songwriter Joshua Radin, will be released as an iTunes exclusive on Tuesday, February 12.
A preview of Radin's upcoming sophomore album, the newly-compiled Valentine's Day bundle of songs premieres "Sky," a plaintive acoustic-flavored duet featuring the Staten Island indie pop performer Ingrid Michaelson. "Unclear Sky" also debuts a studio version of "Lovely Tonight"; the album version of "The Fear You Won't Fall"; and a previously unreleased demo of "You've Got Growing Up To Do," the song Radin performed for the studio audience on "Ellen!" on January 16 (https://ellen.warnerbros.com/2008/01/joshua_radin_another_ellen_web.php).
Joshua Radin will co-headline a run of shows with Ingrid Michaelson in February-March before joining the 2008 Hotel Cafe Tour beginning March 13 at the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas (please see itinerary following).
More than two-and-a-quarter million fans have viewed Joshua's profile on his myspace (https://www.myspace.com/joshuaradin) page, where his songs have enjoyed more than five million plays.
An old-school tunesmith and lyrical craftsman who forgoes technical gimmickry in favor of deeply felt poetics, emotional resonance, finely spun melodies and unforgettable performances, Joshua Radin released his first indie EP (now out-of-print and highly collectible), First Between 3rd and 4th, in July 2004.
Radin's association with Hotel Cafe dates back to his fabled Monday night residencies at the Los Angeles hot-spot which led to a tour of more than 15 cities across America in the autumn of 2005. Radin was a co-headliner on the 2006 Hotel Cafe tour, which followed a stint of shows opening for Katie Melua, Vienna Teng and Anna Nalick. That same year, Radin sold out two concerts at New York's Bowery Ballroom.
Television audiences have heard Radin's song, "Everything'll Be Alright (Will's Lullaby)," on both ABC's prime time drama "Brothers & Sisters" starring Calista Flockhart and on The CW's "One Tree Hill." (Wednesday, September 27, 9/8c).
Radin's debut album, 2006's We Were Here, received a coveted four-star review in Rolling Stone. A video for Joshua's single, "Closer," was lensed by actor/director Zach Braff ("Scrubs," "Garden State").
Several of Joshua Radin's songs - including "Winter" and "These Photographs" - have been heard on the NBC television sitcom "Scrubs," the FOX television drama "North Shore," and the ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," which aired "Closer" and "These Photographs." Radin's song, "Star Mile," was heard in the film and soundtrack for "Last Kiss," starring Zach Braff and Rachel Bilson. "What If You," another track from We Were Here, is featured in "Catch & Release" starring Jennifer Garner.
