Steve Earle - Townes


Recommended Posts

I'm really looking forward to this..

Steve is set to release Townes, his highly anticipated follow up to the Grammy Award-winning album Washington Square Serenade, on May 12 via New West Records. The 15-song set is comprised of songs written by Earle's friend and mentor, the late singer-songwriter, Townes Van Zandt.

When speaking about Townes, Earle stated, "This may be one of the best records I've ever made." The album features such guests as Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine/The Nightwatchman, Steve's wife and acclaimed singer-songwriter Allison Moorer, Dennis Crouch, Tim O'Brien, Darrel Scott, Shad Cobb and Steve's son, Justin Townes Earle.

Steve will be touring in support of Townes with tour dates announced shortly. Townes will also be available as a deluxe two-CD set, as well as double limited edition 180 gram vinyl. You can listen to "Lungs" from the new album today over at http://pitchfork.com/article/news/149570-steve-earle-to-release-townes-van-zandt-tribute-album
