Metamodern Sounds In Country Music

Artist: Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson isn't one to rest on his laurels, which is why, less than a year after the release of his critically acclaimed debut, the singer-songwriter is coming out with his captivating and wholly unique sophomore album. The album title, an allusion to Ray Charles's groundbreaking 1962 record, hints at the psychedelic sounds found within, a departure from Simpson's first album, which drew comparisons to the music of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard.
