Sturgill Simpson‘s highly-anticipated new project, A Sailor’s Guide To Earth, will release April 15 on Atlantic Records. It’s the follow-up to 2014’s Grammy-nominated Metamodern Sounds In Country Music.
The album’s first single, “Brace For Impact (Live A Little)” premieres today (March 4) at SturgillSimpson.com.
The album, which Simpson produced, was written–from start to finish–as a letter to his first child, who arrived in 2014. The project features eight original songs, plus a rendition of Nirvana’s “In Bloom.” It was recorded primarily at Nashville’s The Butcher Shoppe, with engineer David Ferguson and assistant engineer Sean Sullivan.
Simpson will launch a spring tour on May 5 at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater, in Austin, Texas. Dates in Oklahoma, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Michigan, and more follow.
