His new album 'The Beast In Its Tracks' is out today, and Josh Ritter is our guest on Words & Music, tonight at 9pm. See video now.

A painful divorce didn't hinder Josh Ritter's need to create. In fact, in the darkest hours, his songwriting propelled him through. The resulting album is called The Beast In Its Tracks—and it's not the downer you might expect. There is humor, grace and wisdom mixed in with the view of tough times, and in Josh's latest visit to Studio A, he shared some acoustic trio versions of the new tunes.
