NPR Streams New Sturgill Simpson Album/ UK Shows Announced

Here, an exclusive track from Sturgill Simpson’s new masterpiece.

‘Masterpiece’, y’hear that? That’s what Esquire are calling Sturgill’s new album. They continue – “Sturgill Simpson’s new record, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, out May 13, is singular. It is the best country record of the year, hands down. That is, if you can even call it country. Frankly, I don’t know what it is, except for brilliant, and seriously, seriously weird in a way we haven’t seen in Americana in a very long time.

The aforementioned exclusive track is called ‘Life Of Sin’. Listen to it now.

More likely though, you’ll be wanting to hear all the tracks. Well good news – NPR are hosting a “First Listen” stream of the full album here.
