Sturgill Simpson - The Ballad of Dood and Juanita
IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE RECORD LABEL:
"Due to the global supply chain backlog and manufacturing delays, the vinyl release for Sturgill Simpson’s 'The Ballad of Dood & Juanita' has been moved to February 25th, 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support."
Sturgill Simpson will be releasing his new concept album, The Ballad of Dood and Juanita, on CD on August 20th, vinyl release will be December 3rd. This is the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter's third album in twelve months and his most ambitious project to date.. Written and recorded in less than a week, and featuring the same ace musicians who played on last year's Cuttin' Grass albums, the record tells a classic American story of a Civil War-era couple torn apart by violence and reunited by love—what Simpson calls "a simple tale of either redemption or revenge."
“I just wanted to write a story—not a collection of songs that tell a story, but an actual story, front to back,” says Simpson. He describes the concept album as a “rollercoaster ride through all the styles of traditional country and bluegrass and mountain music that I love, including gospel and a cappella.”
