New Music 2015 - Part 31 - Jason Isbell - Something More Than Free

Less than a fortnight ago I mentioned the forthcoming Jason Isbell studio LP. This is confirmation of 'Something More Than Free' and some of the material that will appear on it. The eleven songs include:

  • 24 Frames
  • Children of Children
  • Flagship
  • If It Takes A Lifetime
  • Palmetto Rose
The musicians involved will be top-drawer as ever, including his wife Amanda Shires and they are expecting their first child. Production is by Dave Cobb who did the same with honours on the 2013 LP 'Southeastern'. It is released (in North America at least) by (his own label) Southeastern Records on 17 July 2015. UK/Europe release date is unknown to me at this time but, as things currently are, that might actually be 16 July 2015. It is by all counts a whole lot more cheerful than the last release, as might reasonably be expected in the circumstances. As he puts it "a lower head count".
This might even be the album artwork but I wouldn't bet on that.
