As previously reported, Gregory Alan Isakov has completed work on his new album, This Empty Northern Hemisphere, and is about to embark on a tour with Brandi Carlile, with whom Isakov collaborated on a number of tracks. Although it won't be out until Tuesday, May 19, we've managed to get our hands on a track from the record, which we've posted for your streaming pleasure after the jump. If the song in question, "Evelyn," is any indication of what's to come, this one is definitely worth waiting for.
