folk/roots hero returns with new album

This time there are not overtly political songs but there is a song called Stuck On The Treadmill which is about people struggling to keep their jobs and how hard it is to earn a wage to live on, obviously it's part sociological and part political and is about the situation of the last few years. There are one or two songs like that on the record. Other songs are about all kinds of things- love songs, songs of betrayal, jealousy and hatred!
