Missoula songwriter David Boone has returned after a seven-year hiatus to release the first two singles from his forthcoming album “A Bubble To Burst.” The tracks, “Country Song” and “Work in Progress” were produced by UK-based Danton Supple, known for his work producing acts like Coldplay and U2. “Work in Progress” features Pearl Jam bassist and fellow Montana native, Jeff Ament, on bass.

For Boone, the new songs on “A Bubble to Burst” describe his family’s seven-year journey — one of trauma, of invaluable time lost together and of his healing. Boone was sidelined with medical issues, and this represents his first release since his 2012 album, titled “Dawns.”

The first singles are already garnering praise internationally.

Through the month of May, Boone has also made available what he is calling “a time capsule recording.” Twelve previously unreleased tracks recorded in 2007, the collection titled “The First Stand, The Final Straw” is a sort of “lost album,” Boone said.

You can download “The First Stand, The Final Straw” (a time capsule recording) by visiting www.davidboonemusic.com. There is an option to download the music for free, and to donate. All proceeds will go to the mixing and developing of the old recordings for a vinyl release. Three of the tracks were recorded and mixed by Whitefish resident Toby Scott, who recorded Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In The USA,” “The River,” and “Ghost of Tom Joad” albums.

Boone recently signed a six-song deal with Sony EMI to produce custom scores, and his first song with Sony was recently placed in the international hit television series, “Erkenci Kus” (Early Birds).

He is making his older collection available for free to the public as an effort to reconnect to the community at large.

“I felt like putting this old batch of songs out for free is all a part of the healing process, it’s part of what I love about art; the ability to give a gift. It’s me just putting myself back out there … one step at a time,” Boone said.

Pre-orders of the album, “A Bubble To Burst,” featuring Jeff Ament, are also available at Boone’s site. Much of Missoula, including the beloved Uptown Diner, are highlighted in these storied songs.
