Hot Water Music vocalist/guitarist Chuck Ragan has made a new song, “Nomad by Fate,” available for free download. The track comes from Ragan’s upcoming third solo album, ‘Covering Ground,’ which will be released on September 13 via SideOneDummy Records.

“The majority, if not all of these songs were either written on the road or they are about the road,” the singer/songwriter said in a press release. He added that the new album “depicts what I’ve done since the release of the last record, as well as the majority of my life.”

This fall, Ragan will be hitting the road as part of Dropkick Murphys’ first Shamrock-N-Roll Festival in the US. Afterward, he’ll be heading overseas to join Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio, Dave Hause of The Loved Ones, and Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem/Horrible Crowes for The Revival Tour.
