I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is the anticipated follow up to the Grammy Award winning 2009 release Townes. The 11- track set was produced by T Bone Burnett and is Earle’s first collection of original material since his 2007 Grammy Award winning album, Washington Square Serenade.
The album includes the celebrated song “This City,” written for the HBO Original Series, Treme, which Earle also appeared in as an actor. “This City” features horn arrangements by Allen Toussaint and has garnered a Grammy Award Nomination in the Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media Category. Other highlights include the ballad “Every Part of Me” and the ode to those who make their living on the “The Gulf Of Mexico”.
