Raw and ragged

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | 2 Comments

This time, Lucinda Williams  turns to I-20 — a 190-mile highway that cuts a line across the northern end of her home state, Louisiana — for inspiration. The Ghosts of Highway 20 will be released on Feb. 5th, 2016. It is filled with characters who either travel along the highway or live near its off-ramps, using I-20 as a jumping-off point for an album that focuses on lovers, losers, leavers and landscapes.

Pedal-steel player Greg Leisz plays a central role on The Ghosts of Highway 20, layering the songs with textured twang and sharing production duties with both Williams and Tom Overby. Guitarists Bill Frisell and Val McCallum also make appearances, joined by Williams‘ familiar rhythm section of Butch Norton and David Sutton.
