About this album

So Runs the World Away is the sixth full-length album by American singer-songwriter Josh Ritter. It was released on vinyl record on April 17th, 2010 as a part of Record Store Day in the United States. The vinyl record came packaged with a CD version of the album as well. The official album release was April 23, 2010 in Ireland and May 4, 2010 worldwide. Ritter said of the album that it “marks the beginning of a new period in life,” and that overall, “the songs are larger and more detailed, and feel to me as if they were painted in oil on large canvasses.” Ritter got the title from a line in the third act of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
