NPR icon NPR Music Presents: Josh Ritter In Concert

by Stephen Thompson
Laura Wilson

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.

NPR icon First Listen: Zammuto, 'Anchor'
