NPR icon NPR Music Presents: Josh Ritter In Concert

by Stephen Thompson

Ritter's new album, The Beast in Its Tracks, is by any definition a breakup record; he wrote it following his own divorce, and every song finds him picking through a relationship's wreckage in pursuit of root causes and a way forward. Watch him perform the album's songs live on Monday, March 4 in an exclusive First Listen Live show for NPR Music.

The new album from R&B's resident provocateur is the embodiment of what she has always contended as an artist: that she can't be molded to fit inside one genre.
