Storied singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has released his latest album, Downhill From Everywhere, via Inside Recordings. In support of the new record, Browne will hit the road for a joint summer tour with James Taylor and a September run of “Evening With” shows.

The release of Downhill From Everywhere was preceded by album single “My Cleveland Heart“, which Browne performed last month of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The songwriting on the album presents a heightened sense of urgency from the aging icon during an age when social, political, and environmental issues are reaching an inflection point. The songs feel like direct rallying cries to various pressing causes, like the shimmering “Love Is Love” and the stomping “Until Justice Is Real”.

“I see the writing on the wall,” Browne explains in a statement. “I know there’s only so much time left in my life. But I now have an amazing, beautiful grandson, and I feel more acutely than ever the responsibility to leave him a world that’s inhabitable.”

While the issues Browne tackles on the album are often sweeping and existential, he writes on a far more intimate scale, consistently zeroing in on the human experience at the heart of it all. “There’s a deep current of inclusion running through this record,” Browne explains. “I think that idea of inclusion, of opening yourself up to people who are different than you, that’s the fundamental basis for any kind of understanding in this world.”
