Simpson was on Rick Rubin's podcast, Broken Record, recently and it was a great interview
After hours of listening, breakers roar is the best track on the album
Please respect my decision. No interviews. #godsplan
I'd love to hear him and Sierra Hull do Oh Sarah, Hero and the Promise.
Got the email that my cuttin grass vinyl has shipped!
Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow night Dec 10th
Well fuck I can't stay up that late tonight. Any idea what the track list is?
It's on Spotify right now. Midnight EST
Just saw it. That track list
Oh Sara and Hero....
Huge fan of Pollywog and Keep it Between the Lines (among others), thanks for sharing
Can't wait to listen to it. Wife may kill me if I woke her up with it right now though.
Here in the next few min I expect.
I'm listening to it now, had just started the new Taylor Swift album but saw this thread bumped and switched over. It seemed like Cuttin Grass - Vol 1 was marketed more, this one snuck up on me, but i'll also readily admit that I've been on Instagram a lot less recently and also not sure if i've been in this thread much.
Regardless, i did watch Kimmel earlier in the week and saw that he'll be on tomorrow, so will be on the lookout for that. And speaking of SS live--and considering i'm listening to You Can Have the Crown--I've always enjoyed this quick live video of him playing that and Some Days back to back.
Volume 2 > Volume 1
Didn't know the last song he wrote with Merle.
Looked at pre ordering one of the blue vinyls... expected to ship in April
Get a set of headphones. Sounds better anyways.
oh sarah is it
Vol 2 > Vol 1. And vol. 1 is good.
Had no idea this was coming until I woke up this morning. Hell of a surprise
Same, and I am already through my first listen. I think I'm also on team Vol 2>Vol 1 but I'll need a few more listens to solidify that opinion.
All these V2 > V1 posts have me excited as I absolutely adore V1.
Also makes me think I'm gunna be disappointed
He's yet to disappoint me
Only thing disappointing to me is that its only 12 songs, 40 minutes long.
Checked on this thread the last night before heading up to bed. Gave a few play throughs last night and now I am draggin balls.
Are Jesus Boogie/Tennessee/Hobo cartoon new songs? or are they sunday valley tunes?
The first two are. Hobo Cartoon is a new one co-written by Merle. This was in the email they sent out around the album:
As Simpson continues to explore different musical directions, the biggest surprise on The Cowboy Arms Sessions is certainly the closer, “Hobo Cartoon,” a new song he co-wrote with the late, incomparable Merle Haggard. “We got to know each other in the last two years of his life,” says Simpson. “He would call a lot, we’d talk on the phone. When he got sick, he was still writing songs, even in his hospital bed. This just popped up one day in the in box—he sent me these lyrics in a text and he said ‘From one railroad man to another.’
“After four or five years, it was time to cowboy up and give this thing a go. So I finished writing the song, and it just felt weird to imagine it with some big eight-piece band. Merle loved bluegrass, so it felt like a proper homage, really exposed and stripped down to the root of something. Maybe I’ll recut it with a hard country band one day, but it just seemed like a beautiful way to end this chapter.”
This is awesome.
Jesus Boogie and Tennessee are Sunday Valley joints, yeah.
Digging the shit out of Jesus Boogie and Hobo Cartoon.
definitely not disappointed
Welcome to Earth is probably the best song on either album.
You can have the crown
Maybe I'm alone but I love this version of Hero.
And for the completists
32 new tracks from Sturgill Simpson in 2020. What a good year.
I don't do vinyl, but I need to support him beyond streaming. Time to google where to buy these CDs.
Everything is better in bluegrass
I was TYO over Thanksgiving when I learned what a Pollywog was.
Oh you're not alone
Can pre-order on his website. Vinyl ships in late March early April, no idea about CDs
Done. Cheers Jax Teller
I had a cousin who was an officer in the Navy so I knew. Sounds absolutely horrible.
Damn just got done buying the Vol 1 on vinyl and now this. What a day
