    Singer/songwriter Billy Bragg, who has an artful storytelling style that often includes political themes and material, will release his tenth album, Tooth & Nail, on March 19.

    The album is his first since 2008's Mr. Love & Justice, so it's been a minute.

    The album was produced by Joe Henry and will be released via Cooking Vinyl.

    Bragg said that the 12 tracks on the album were inspired by personal events rather than political ones, saying, "Most people, when they hear my name, think of polemical anthems born in struggle. I often find myself having to remind people that I am also the Sherpa of Heartbreak, writing songs about the struggle to maintain our relationships with those we love the most."

    We told you he does have an artful storytelling style that includes matters of the heart.

    Bragg's seven-week North American tour will launch at SXSW in March and runs through May.
