Richard Thompson Announces New Album Still

Folk-rock legend Richard Thompson has announced plans to release his brand new album Still. Produced by Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) the album is due for release on the 29th June.

“Richard’s been one of my favorite guitar players for a very long time,” Tweedy explained. “When I think about it, he’s also one of my favorite songwriters and favorite singers. He’s the Ultimate Triple Threat. Getting to work closely with him on this record was a truly rewarding experience, not to mention a great thrill. And he keeps alive my streak of working exclusively with artists who make me look good as a producer.”

“I really tried to not have any preconceived ideas, but of course you do,” Thompson said of working with Tweedy. “I tried to shove those to the back of my mind. You don’t really know until you turn up — what the studio is like, what the gear is like. It ended up being a nice unfolding of surprises.”

Check out the full track listing for Still below:

1. She Never Could Resist A Winding Road
2. Beatnik Walking
3. Patty Don’t You Put Me Down
4. Broken Doll
5. All Buttoned Up
6. Josephine
7. Long John Silver
8. Pony In The Stable
9. Where’s Your Heart
10. No Peace No End
11. Dungeons For Eyes
12. Guitar Heroes

Watch Sean Rowe Cover “1952 Vincent Black Lightning”

Sean Rowe’s cover of Richard Thompson’s “1952 Vincent Black Lightning” first came to my attention last year but I just haven’t had a chance to post it. The song is, of course, a classic and has been covered a number of times – but I can safely say this is the best version I’ve heard. The track is just perfectly suited to Rowe’s gravelly baritone.

Check out Sean Rowe’s cover of “1952 Vincent Black Lightning” below:

Details of the Thompson Family Album

Richard Thompson

The latest folk dynasty to take a stab at recording a family album are The Thompsons – English folk legends Richard and Linda Thompson and their various musical family members. Put together by Richard and Linda’s son Teddy Thompson, the album also features Teddy’s sister Kami Thompson, her husband James Walbourne (who sing’s with Kami in The Rails), Richard’s son Jack Thompson and the grandson of Richard and Linda and Teddy’s nephew does Zak Hobbs. Did you get all of that?

“I thought it was just an interesting idea,” says Teddy Thompson. “To be honest about it, I wasn’t ready to make another record, and was wondering what I was going to do for the next few months. I sent an email to everybody asking them all to come up with two new songs. I thought it would be fun and easy, and not too much work for anyone. Only two songs each! Easy.”

The album is titled Thompson – Family and is due for release on the 18th November. Check out the trailer below:

And the first track from the album, the Richard Thompson led “One Life At A Time”, has already been released along with some clips of the other tracks. Check them out here:
