Steve Earle's new album, I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, debuted last week at #24 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and #4 on the Billboard Country, Folk, and Independent Record charts.  The album also attained Steve Earle's highest chart debuts in the United Kingdom at #28 and Sweden at #16.  Additionally, it debuted at #17 in Canada.  Produced by T Bone Burnett,I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alivehas received critical acclaim including a 3 ½ out of 4 Star review in the Los Angeles Times while the New York Poststated that the new album was "American roots music at its best" in their 3 ½ out of 4 Star review. 


Earle's long anticipated debut novel, also named I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, will be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and will be in stores this Thursday, May 12th.  The novel imagines the troubled life of Doc Ebersole as he is haunted by the ghost of his former patient and friend, Hank Williams.  Patti Smith stated, "Steve Earle brings to his prose the same authenticity, poetic spirit and cinematic energy he projects in his music.  I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is like a dream you can't shake, offering beauty and remorse, redemption in spades."  Steve Earle has also reprised his role of Harley during the second season of HBO's celebrated series Treme (appearing for the first time this season in last night's new episode). 


After many years of touring solo and acoustically worldwide, Earle will be touring in support of the new album with his electric live band, The Dukes (and Duchesses) featuring Allison Moorer.  The tour will start on June 9th in Seattle, WA but first, the band will perform on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno this Wednesday night on NBC (11:35pm/10:35pm C).  Confirmed tour dates are below.


I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive follows Steve Earle's three consecutive Grammy Award winning albums, The Revolution Starts...Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007) and Townes (2009).  It features the song "This City" which has garnered both Emmy and Grammy Award nominations as it was written for and appeared on HBO's Treme.
