    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'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.

    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.”

    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.
