Richard Thompson Announces New Album

Richard Thompson

Richard Thompson announced his latest solo album Still, a Jeff Tweedy-produced project releasing June 23. He also shared the album’s first single, “Beatnik Waiting.”

“It turned out be really good idea,” says Thompson, in a press release, of working with Tweedy. “Jeff is musically very sympathetic. Although some of his contributions are probably rather subtle to the listener’s ear, they were really interesting and his suggestions were always very pertinent.”

“Richard’s been one of my favorite guitar players for a very long time,” adds Tweedy. “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.”

Still will be available in a number of formats, including a double 180-gram vinyl and a deluxe CD. Listen to “Beatnik Waiting” via Aquarium Drunkard. Pre-order Still here.
