Ray Lamontagne’s “Supernova” Now Available For Pre-Order

Grammy Award winner Ray LaMontagne is set to release his 5th studio album, Supernova on May 6th. The album is available for pre-order at iTunes now. Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive “Supernova” and “Airwaves” instantly today. Additionally the pre-order will include new tracks to be released on both April 1st and April 15th leading up to the album release date.

Supernova was produced by Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and recorded in Nashville, TN. The first single, Supernova 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, Rolling Stone gave the single 3 1/2 stars. Last week, Ray announced he will be hitting the road for his 42 city date Supernova Summer Tour. For more information on the tour please visit www.RayLamontagne.com.

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.
