Joe Chester Reveals Fourth Single from ‘Jupiter’s Wife’

Joe Chester releases the fourth single, Nothing At The End’ on Friday August 21st, from his widely acclaimed album ‘Jupiter’s Wife’. Joe gives us some background insight in to the singles tracks.

‘Nothing At The End’

‘Along With Staying Together For The Children’, ‘Nothing At The End’ came along in a kind of trance in the summer of 2017. I feel very grateful for these mysterious letters from the ether, as who knows where they come from, somewhere suspended in the space between understanding and recrimination. In all my years as a student of song, perhaps the greatest thing I’ve learnt is that in art, unlike in politics, you can be “truthful but not honest”. I wanted the song to have something of the feel of Doc Pomus’s Save The Last Dance For Me, a rock and roll masterpiece with such generosity of spirit (and such a bittersweet backstory).

‘Down In The Willow Garden’

During the recording of ‘Jupiter’s Wife’ sometimes I would record a quick cover version while the tapes were rolling. This is one, a nineteenth century Irish murder ballad originally called Rose Connolly that crossed the Atlantic, changed its name and wound up in Kentucky where Phil and Don Everly learned it and put it on their 1958 LP, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us. Those guys are like Mozart to me.
