Chuck Ragan has officially unveiled his follow up to 2009′s Gold Country. His third studio album will be titled Covering Ground and is set for a September 13, 2011 release via SideOneDummy Records. Ragan comments on the disc’s title, pointing to his restless touring schedule for inspiration:

“The majority, if not all of these songs were either written on the road or they are about the road. There aren’t any hidden meanings within the title at all. It is what it is and it depicts what I’ve done since the release of the last record, as well as the majority of my life… but the fact of the matter is, some of us have been raised to live and thrive in one place throughout our lives, while others have constantly been on the move. There’s no telling which is for the better or for the worse. That all depends on the person we wish to be and the perspective we choose to view.”

The album was recorded between three different tours and will boast ten brand new tracks.

For the record, Ragan enlisted the help of numerous artists to come and play on the album. Guests includes the full time members Jon Gaunt (fiddle) and Joe Ginsberg (upright bass), as well as Christopher Thorn (mandolin, guitar, lap steel, banjo), Rich Steff (organ, piano, accordion) and Todd Beene (pedal steel) of Lucero, Chris Phillips of Squirrel Nut Zippers (bodhran, tambourines, percussion), Frank Turner (backing vocals), Audra Mae (backing vocals), and Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem (backing vocals).

3. You Get What You Give
4. Wish on the Moon
5. Come Around
6. Seems We’re OK

8. Right as Rain

10. Lost and Found

I'd add Kevin Devine and Saves The Day to that list as well.

This is excellent. I really don't expect anything less than greatness from him though.
