Jason Isbell has been in the studio this winter working on his follow-up to 2015’s fantastic Something More Than Free. That record is almost done, and Isbell has even begun teasing an announcement on his website. In the meantime, Isbell just announced that he and his band, The 400 Unit, will be releasing a covers EP for Record Store Day in April. The EP is called Live from Welcome to 1979 and was reportedly recorded live and “directly onto lacquer” at Nashville’s Welcome to 1979 studio. Release tracks include “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “Sway” (both originally performed by The Rolling Stones), John Prine’s “Storm Windows,” Candi Staton’s “Heart on a String,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City,” and Drive-By Truckers’ “Never Gonna Change.”
A selection of lyrical music "Best Of Love Ballads Vol. 02" – heartfelt and sincere work, in which everyone will find their common ground. The album is well matched and You will want to listen to it several times. Definitely a highlight of the main leaders among the songs, perhaps, impossible, as all the songs are very different, but they have in common is an atmosphere of mutual feelings that are expressed in song lyrics.
Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit will issue their new studio album The Nashville Sound on June 16 through Southeastern Records/Thirty Tigers. “White Man’s World,” the fourth single from the forthcoming LP, has been shared in advance of the record’s release. The single is one of the original compositions Isbell wrote that’s among the 10 making up The Nashville Sound. The singer-songwriter again worked with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb and further incorporated in the recording process his The 400 Unit band mates, guitarist Sadler Vaden, drummer Chad Gamble, bassist Jimbo Hart, keyboardist Derry deBorja and Isbell’s wife, fiddler/vocalist Amanda Shires.
