Jackson Browne will be releasing a new studio album, Standing In the Breach, on October 7th. The album will be Browne’s first new album of new material since 2008’s Time The Conqueror. The album, Browne’s 14th, will be self-released on the California singer-songwriter’s Inside Recordings label.

According to Amazon, the album appears to have ten tracks, including the previously heard 2011 song “You Know the Night,” and “The Birds of St. Marks,” a song that Browne first recorded as a demo in 1970 but has never seen an official studio release.

“This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, all of whom appear on the new CD, and whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs,” Browne says. “The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz on this album – the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour.”

The Americana Music Association recently announced that Browne will be 2014’s recipient of the “Spirit of Americana, Free Speech in Music” Lifetime Achievement Award this September at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

Here’s a clip of Browne singing the title track “Standing In the Breach” back in 2012:
