Patty Griffin Shares New Song from Self-Titled Album
Patty Griffin has announced her new album, self-titled, will be here March 8th featuring her first batch of new songs since 2015. It’s her 10th studio album and frequent collaborator Robert sings on ‘What Now’ and ‘Coins.’ She says the new album is born out of personal struggle relating to her battle with Cancer. In an interview with People she elaborated, saying:
“I think life comes in different packages, and I had the cancer package for a little while that I had to get myself through…But it also brought about these great, new places that I found out about while I was struggling along. … I think that has been true of all the work I’ve ever done, but this was the more recent phase of that and maybe a little more struggle than before.”
I’ll play you the wonderful new track called ‘Where I Come From.’
Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit To Tour With Father John Misty
Jason Isbell and Father John Misty have announced a co-headlining tour for summer 2019 with support from Jade Bird and Erin Rae. Did you know Father John Misty wrote ‘Mr. Tillman’ off God’s Favorite Customer about a run-in with Isbell in a hotel? If you take a closer look at the lyrics…
Mr. Tillman, good to see you again
There’s a few outstanding charges just before we check you in
Let’s see here, you left your passport in the mini fridge
And the message with the desk says here the picture isn’t his
And oh, just a reminder about our policy
Don’t leave your mattress in the rain if you sleep on the balcony
Okay, did you and your guests have a pleasant stay?
What a beautiful tattoo that young man had on his face
And oh, will you need a driver out to Philly?
Jason Isbell’s here as well
And he seemed a little worried about you
Find tour dates here.
Dustin Bentall Releases First Album in Five Years
Vancouver’s Dustin Bentall hasn’t exactly been ‘inactive’ for five years, but he sure made us wait for his new album High in the Satellite. He’s been on the road constantly with the likes of John Prine, Blue Rodeo, Matt Mays and his father Barney Bentall. He’s a co-producer on the record, too. This weekend I’m featuring the title-track, it’s a beauty.
Susto Releases New Album ‘Ever Since I Lost My Mind’
Susto is back with the follow up to their breakout sophomore album I’m Fine Today. Fronted by Justin Osborne, Charleston’s Susto released their new album Ever Since I Lost My Mind this week. The album was produced by Ian Fitchuk who’s work you may recognize from Kacey Musgraves & Ruston Kelly. You’ll notice the song ‘Esta Bien’ is written and performed in Spanish. Susto is a Spanish word too meaning, “when your sould is separated from your body” or in simpler terms, a panic attack. Justin has spent a lot of time writing in Cuba.
Matt Andersen Shares New Song Featuring Amy Helm
Let me tell you something…your ears are in for a TREAT when I produce the studio session we just recorded with Matt Andersen, a fabulous Canadian musician from New Brunswick. He was trying to find the right time to team up with Amy Helm on a song, and their tour schedules finally allowed this beautiful song to be written.
His new album Halfway Home By Morning is out March 22nd and Amy Helm will join him for some dates in Ontario. Find more: http://www.stubbyfingers.ca/
