The Mastersons are singer-songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore. When they're not touring the world as valued longtime members of Steve Earle's band the Dukes, the musical and marital twosome make inspired albums of their own emotionally vivid, deeply humanistic songs. The duo's fourth set of original compositions is the appropriately titled No Time for Love Songs.

The Mastersons, who now call Los Angeles home after stints in Austin, Brooklyn and Terlingua, Texas; recorded No Time for Love Songs at L.A.'s legendary Sunset Sound Recorders with Shooter Jennings; the album was engineered and mixed by five-time Grammy Award-winning engineer, Ryan Freeland. Shooter had recruited The Mastersons to play on his albums Family Man (2012) and The Other Life (2013), and they'd recently reunited to work on Tanya Tucker's acclaimed comeback album While I'm Livin', which Jennings co-produced with Brandi Carlile.

Prior to launching their recording partnership, Chris played with Son Volt, Jack Ingram and others, while Eleanor lent her talents to projects by Regina Spektor and Angus & Julia Stone. In 2008, Chris stepped out with his self-released solo album The Late Great Chris Masterson, while Eleanor made her solo move with the D.I.Y. effort Airplanes. In 2012, they released their first collaborative effort, Birds Fly South. That album won widespread critical acclaim, with Esquire designating the Mastersons as one of the "Bands You Need To Know Right Now." Two years later, they followed up their debut with Good Luck Charm, which the Austin Chronicle praised for the duo's "spunky wit and rare emotional maturity." Good Luck Charm earned the Mastersons slots on NPR's Mountain Stage and at high-profile festivals around the world. 2017's Transient Lullaby explored new musical and lyrical territory, demonstrating how much the pair's songwriting and performing skills had evolved with time, travel and experience.

Ghosts are always with us, waiting for the right moment, or reason, to reveal themselves. Then a song, a stretch of road, or someone's laughter hits your ear, and suddenly you're back in the moment, feeling the rush of emotions as if time never moved on.

For Eleanor and Bonnie Whitmore, two of roots music's most accomplished songwriter/ instrumentalist/ vocalists, the ghosts chose to appear right as Covid became entrenched — when live music evaporated and people were isolated from each other. Bonnie, whose four solo albums are all "state-of-a-real-woman's-heart" jewels, decided to join sister Eleanor and her husband Chris Masterson in their Los Angeles closed circle for a break. Chris, who's recorded four albums with his wife as The Mastersons, saw the visit as an opportunity to issue a practical mandate: If Bonnie was coming, it was time for the sisters to make an album. Not just an album, but "the album" — the musical inevitability that's been simmering since a 22-year-old Eleanor was protecting her curly headed 15-year-old sister at gigs in local bars.

The collection - produced by Chris Masterson and aptly titled Ghost Stories - includes two covers: "Big Heart Sick Mind" (written by their pal Aaron Lee Tasjan) and "On the Wings of a Nightingale" (written by Paul McCartney for iconic siblings The Everly Brothers) and will be released on Compass Records in January 2022 followed by Europe and US tours.
