Gathering is the 9th studio album from critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Josh Ritter. The follow-up to 2015's Sermon On The Rocks, Gathering features Bob Weir on the track "When Will I Be Changed".

Josh Ritter is the definition of an experienced songwriter. After graduating from Oberlin College in 1999 Ritter devoted his life to a songwriting career, releasing albums independently and garnering word-of-mouth popularity. He eventually caught the attention of Irish songwriter Glen Hansard (writer of the song "Falling Slowly" from the movie Once) and was invited to be the tour opener for his band The Frames. This then resulted in Josh gaining international success, with his third record Hello Starling becoming a charting hit in Ireland. His songs have been featured on the TV show Parenthood, and in movies like The Other Woman and Typeface. Josh Ritter has so far released 8 studio albums, is an author, husband, father, and is considered one of the best living songwriters by Paste Magazine.

"I had that feeling you get when the sky is suddenly dark before a summer storm – the thunderheads looming at the edge of the fields – the birds quiet. The smell of the gathering electricity in the atmosphere, the certainty of lightning. This record is the product of a strange and interesting time. When I started writing Gathering, I felt tired of living in the shadow of my earlier self, my earlier work – but more than discouraged, I felt charged with the possibility and the freedom of cutting myself loose from my own and others' expectations. I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms. Some, like 'Feels Like Lightning' or 'Friendamine' are physical storms. Others, like 'Dreams,' are mental ones. Listening to these songs now, I hear uncertainty, mania, laughter and sadness, all vying for their place on the album. I was surprised by the new voice, but I kept writing.

I still can’t tell what era these stories are from. They feel part roustabout, part psalm to me. The narrators are often outsized; big talkers who carry deep inner uncertainties and struggle to keep a strong front against the world raging around them. 'Showboat,' 'Cry Softly' and 'Oh Lord' all laugh through real darkness, whether alone or among others. In quieter moments, as on 'Strangers,' 'Thunderbolt's Goodnight,' or 'Train Go By,' the vulnerability of the characters shines through the cracks of their exterior bluster. As I wrote this album, I found myself painting again in a serious way. The landscapes that emerged in the paintings followed the same preoccupations with gathering storms that are in evidence on the songs.

When it came time for recording, I had more songs than I have ever had at one time. Rather than picking through them in advance (as I did extensively for Sermon on the Rocks), I opted to record everything I had over the course of two weeks. The goal was to put a ton of stuff down and think about it later. Trina Shoemaker, my band and I headed for the studio. After the whirlwind of recording had subsided, I was left with a pile of thirty songs. I spent the next couple of months sifting through them in order to decide what songs best hung together to form the record. We did backing vocals and horns in some other studios in Nashville and North Carolina. I asked Bob Weir to sing on 'When Will I Be Changed.' We had written his record, Blue Mountain, together, and working with him was deeply influential to my writing during this time.

I have been writing records for almost twenty years now. Each one has been different from the last in subject and form, but with Gathering I feel I’ve found a new electric dissatisfaction, a new way to rejoice as the storm rolls in." – Josh Ritter

"Two years ago, Josh Ritter was in the recording studio with the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, recording the cowboy songs they'd co-written for Weir's first solo record in nearly three decades. The result, Blue Mountain, was released last fall, bringing with it a country-fried sound rooted in Wild West twang, campfire crooning and other glimpses of America's rural past. The two resume their partnership with 'When Will I Be Changed,' a track from Ritter's upcoming album, Gathering. Written by Ritter, the song pitches its tent midway between the country, gospel and soul camps, with thickly stacked harmonies that evoke the Dead's own folk-rock classic American Beauty. Appropriately, Weir lends his warm, weathered voice to two verses. Behind him, a swirl of guitars, organ and brass turns the song into some sort of Americana hymn, with Ritter begging the world — or maybe its creator — to help him transform sin into salvation." - Robert Crawford, Rolling Stone
