Ray Lamontagne’s 5th Studio Album Supernova Release Date Moved Up To April 29

With anticipation mounting, RCA Records moves up the release date for Grammy Award winner Ray Lamontagne’s 5th studio album, Supernova to April 29th. Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive “Supernova”, “Airwaves” and “Lavender” instantly today in addition to receiving a fourth pre release track from the album on April 15th.

Last week, LaMontagne released his first music video ever for the single, “Supernova” via the Huffington Post. “Supernova” was released in February and is one of Ray’s fastest growing singles at AAA radio, with the song rocketing into the top 5 within two weeks of impact. The single also landed on Entertainment Weekly’s Must List stating the song, “captures young love with a rustic rock sound that evokes Van Morrison and Bob Seger.” Additionally, both People Magazine and Rolling Stone gave the single 3 1/2 stars.

LaMontagne is set to embark on his 42 city date Supernova Summer Tour which starts on May 27th in Portland, Maine. For more information on the tour and to purchase tickets please visit www.RayLamontagne.com.

Supernova was produced by Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and recorded in Nashville, TN. Ray spoke with Time Magazine about the album stating, “For the longest time these songs were eluding me. I felt like a kid trying to collect lightning bugs. I’d catch a glimpse out of the corner of my eye and run for it, but the light would go out just as I thought I’d gotten hold of one. But eventually I caught on to their game. I stopped chasing them altogether. Instead I just sat there as if I were completely disinterested in them. And wouldn’t you know it, one by one they came to me! Flew right into my jar.”

Ray LaMontagne has released 4 studio albums (Trouble, Till The Sun Turns Black, Gossip in the Grain and God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise). Ray’s most recent critically acclaimed, Grammy award winning album God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise released in 2010 debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Digital Album chart. This marked a personal sales best for Ray and tied his debut chart position at #3 with Gossip in the Grain. God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise garnered 3 Grammy Award nominations including the coveted Song of The Year category for “Beg Steal or Borrow” and won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album. The first single off the album, “Beg Steal or Borrow” became Ray’s first radio #1.
