Sturgill Simpson Confirms New Album Is Done, Will Arrive This Year


Breakout local county artist Sturgill Simpson, whose beloved 2014 sophomore effort Metamodern Sounds in Country Music and all of its critical buzz helped fuel his gigantic 2015, including a recent three-night sold out trek at The Ryman, has been insanely busy for at least a couple years straight, but that hasn’t stopped him from already talking new album. In a recent interview with GQ, Sturgill revealed “what’s next is already finished,” noting he will need “about six months at home with [his] family” before thinking about a release, since it’ll inevitably lead to another crazy tour cycle. By our calculations, that puts a new record out around summertime, so we should expect a single or two to arrive in late spring. For the time being, revisit an old favorite, and keep an eye on the site for album updates later in the year.
