Home / News / ANDERS OSBORNE Releases New CD “FLOWER BOX” Today‏


Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter/guitarist ANDERS OSBORNE today announced the immediate release of Flower Box, his second full-length album this year.  Recorded in his hometown of New Orleans late last year, Flower Box is a heavier, guitar-driven follow-up to the acclaimed Spacedust & Ocean Views, which came out March 18.

“I love the way this record comes out stout and determined right out the gate, a four-piece rock & roll band making beautiful and conquering noise,” says OSBORNE.   “The producer, Mark Howard, has a way of making you play in the moment and being confident.  His sounds and engineering style is that of classic records, with his own special sauce of ‘haunting’ on top of it.  The musicians on here are undoubtedly some of my absolute favorites in the world, both as players and as people. Their contributions are invaluable.  Scott Metzger, Brady Blade, Carl Dufrene, Chad Cromwell, Marc Broussard, David LaBruyere, Rob McNelley & Justin Tocket. Bad boys!  I’ve been wanting to make this record for several years and I am stoked it’s finally here.”

A passionate live performer, the musician has won over fans through non-stop touring as well as a heralded collaboration with the North Mississippi All StarsOsborne has been on the road virtually non-stop since February, with dates booked well into October (see itinerary below).

Anders Osborne is a map of intensely felt, passionately engaged living, a fractured but healing topography of heartbreak and hope for fellow travelers to explore.  He’s traveled the world, playing guitar along the way and eventually landing in New Orleans, where he started writing and recording, releasing his first album in 1989.
