Lucinda Williams will release a double album, Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone, on September 30. It’s the 61-year-old Grammy winner’s first collection of new songs since 2011’s Blessed.  It will be released on her new label Highway 20 Records, via Thirty Tigers. 

Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone‘s twenty songs include “Compassion,” based on a poem written by Williams’ father, acclaimed poet Miller Williams, and a cover of JJ Cale’s “Magnolia.”

Guest musicians include guitarists Bill Frisell, Tony Joe White, Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan, and Elvis Costello rhythm section members Pete Thomas (drums) and Davey Faragaher (bass) and Wallflowers guitarist Stuart Mathis. The Wallflowers’ Jakob Dylan sings harmony on “It’s Gonna Rain.” 

Williams rereleased her classic 1988 self-titled album earlier this year.
