Son Volt will release their new album, Notes of Blue, on February 17 via Thirty Tigers. As the title suggests, the new album is inspired by the blues, but "not the standard blues as most know it." The record employs alternate guitar tunings that were used by Mississippi Fred McDowell, Skip James and Nick Drake. You can hear a snippet of "Cherokee Street" from the new album below.

Jar Farrar and the rest of Son Volt will be on tour in 2017 and dates include two stops in NYC: April 7 at Bowery Ballroom and April 8 at Rough Trade. Tickets for Bowery and Rough Trade go on sale Friday, December 2 at noon with AmEx presales beginning Wednesday (11/30) at noon.

They'll also play the 2017 Stagecoach Festival in Indio, CA. All dates are listed below.
