The Cowboy Junkies Marching into The Wilderness with Free MP3 Download

On March 27 the Cowboy Junkies will release The Wilderness, the final installment of the veteran bands four-volume album cycle, The Nomad Series. 

In anticipation a free download is now available for “Angels in the Wilderness,” a track that, according to a blog post by Junkies frontwoman Margo Timmons on the band’s official website, was partly inspired by author Marilynne Robinson’s novel, Gilead. The book, which according to Timmons “takes the form of a letter written by an elderly, dying pastor to his seven year old son,” is credited, in fact, with influencing a great deal of the new album.
