Yes, because it’s a news item. Personally, I am extremely excited. It was pretty obvious the band was still experimenting with the set up but they pulled if off really well, Chuck (Bass), Miles (Drums), and Bobby (Keys) were all equally great.

Sturgill Simpson – Sturgill Simpson Videos

Sturgill SimpsonSturgill Simpson has a new album coming this fall called Sound & Fury, and it will be accompanied by an anime film of the same name to be released on Netflix. I love Futurebirds to death. Twangy indie folk-rock with psych influences, and they approach true country in some of their music. I hope his muse will lead him to find some hooks for his songs, whatever genre he is working in.

While the style and substance of his discography has varied, his songwriting and unwavering commitment to authenticity reminds the listener of Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams more than anything one might hear on the radio. While his debut album High Top Mountain” arrived with little fanfare, 2014’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music” received universal acclaim and catapulted him to stardom as the newest savior of alternative country, alongside acts such as Tyler Childers and Ashley Monroe. When 2016’s A Sailor’s Guide to Earth” garnered even greater fame and led to an upset Grammy win over Lynn herself, Simpson began to cement himself as the next in line of musicians so vital to the genre’s development that their names carry a weight larger than just their songs: Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and finally, Sturgill.

My actual point would be, I’ve yet to hear anyone actually argue he should be denied his right” to make music in whatever genre and at whatever quality he sees fit. I’ve not seen a single argument in favor of his imprisonment. I’ve not actually seen anyone demanding reimbursement because they were owed” a country record. To my knowledge, not a single civil suit has been filed to date.

Fair point, but he is still pretty early in his career. And, I don’t view this or Sailor’s Guide as any real trend of him abandoning country or bluegrass forever. The thing with Sturgill is that there is no rhyme or reason or real trend to what he does. I wouldn’t be surprised if he drops a traditional country or bluegrass album in the next 18 months out of nowhere. He seems to get off on surprising and shocking people, and it’s fun to follow as long as he is putting out quality, sincere material. In his busking livestream outside the CMA’s last year, he said that he would love to do a bluegrass album someday, and also said that he will do another hard country” album…but that it wouldn’t be his next album.

Hmm. Problem is, people DON’T support chefs who cook whatever they want. People support chefs that make good food they like to eat. I suppose chefs have every right to cook only unedible vegan food if they want but, it is an odd choice if you became a prestigious chef for opening a steakhouse. People like steaks and people like McDonald’s notwithstanding its utter lack of any nutritional” value, otherwise mainstream country radio wouldn’t exist 🙂 People do not support chefs who no longer make good food though.

Of course you can post what you want. I’m just with the guys who say Sturgill isn’t interested in doing anything for country music as a tradition. That’s perfectly fine. He can go about his angry indie business and write loud rock music for Pokemon world all he wants.


As much as I want a new country album from Sturgill, I’m interested to see what he’ll cook up with this album. If it sounds like what his current live shows sound like, I’m not sure I’ll dig it, but I’m curious nonetheless.

But throughout Sound & Fury,” it’s difficult to figure out what Simpson expects of himself. This is a shrill, tetchy, claustrophobic rock album sodden with record-biz pouting and only the dullest shades of pre-apocalyptic ennui. And believe it or not, it’s not without precedent. Back in 2010, Shooter Jennings dropped Black Ribbons,” a similarly mutated country album with a dystopian lyric sheet and at least a half-dozen guitar riffs that pushed the perimeters of good taste.

If he keeps producing albums like Tyler Childers ‘Purgatory’ (and his upcoming release), I don’t think his contributions to country music will ever be denied regardless what direction he goes musically. I personally think he gets a kick out of fucking with people and truly doesn’t give a shit what people think.


Made quickly with his touring band at a studio in Detroit, it’s all blown-out synths and guitars, with Simpson’s baritone fuzzed up and buried in the mix. Lyrically, he goes after the Nashville mainstream and the usual music biz jerkies – “You know they don’t like it when you take a stand,” he sings – and hints at leaving it all behind.

An outlaw country record in form and feel – its debt to Waylon Jennings clear and unashamed – High Top Mountain became a word-of-mouth hit in 2013, thereby establishing Simpson’s country credentials and opening the door to a wider future.

In your ear buds, Sturgill Simpson’s new album is a drag. In person, it’s a triumph. CORRECTION: The headline in this story was updated to correct the spelling of Sturgill Simpson’s name.

I’m not saying that people don’t have the right to be like I don’t like this new direction”, hell I don’t like this new direction Sturgill has taken. I’m just so over the people acting like Sturgill owes them a traditional country record. It just reeks of entitlement.

Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide to Earth is the rare album that traverses the entire world, both musically and lyrically. It’s dizzyingly diverse, jumping from one style to the next, with ports of call in Motor City and Music Row, Harlem and Stax, Berlin and London, yet it never leaves Simpson’s very specific point of view. It’s his most personal album as well as his most ambitious: a song cycle penned as a sailor’s poignant letter home to the wife and child he left behind.

In a March 5, 2018, interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Simpson revealed that he is working on his fourth studio album, and hinted that it would be a double album 61 The title of the album, Sound & Fury , was announced on July 21, 2019, at the San Diego Comic-Con , with Simpson describing it as a “sleazy, steamy rock’n’roll record”. A companion anime film bearing the same name will also be released on Netflix 62 The album was officially put up for pre-order on August 20, 2019, with the track “Sing Along” being released the same day.

Sturgill may indeed lose fans with this move. Hell, I doubt I will be buying the album, but that’s his choice. I support him having the rite to take this chance, especially at a time so few artists with noteable careers are willing to push outside the box.


Sturgill needs to do what Sturgill wants to do. And I’m buying because all three of his records are excellent. Don’t worry, he has plenty of albums left in him. He will make great country music again. And who knows, the new record might be more country then he is letting on.

I knew I wanted to make a concept record in song-cycle form, like my favorite Marvin Gaye records where everything just continuously flows. I also wanted it to be something that when my son is older and maybe I’m gone, he can listen to it and get a sense of who I was. I just wanted to talk as directly to him as possible.”He does just that on opener Welcome To Earth (Pollywog),” which kicks the album off with a tense drone intro that relents to a Bowie-by-way-of-Bradley piano theme. Simpson sings like there aren’t actually thousands of fans listening in: Hello, my son, welcome to Earth. You may not be my last but you’ll always be my first.” A few measures later, the song explodes into a stomping r&b coda that showcases his soulful vocals and the down-and-dirty flash of the Dap-Kings horn section.

Some people have the ability to appreciate more than one genre of music at a time. So yes, many people who read SCM are interested in this. Given Sturgill’s history with the country genre, and the fact that his voice is one of the most undeniably country voices out there today no matter what he is singing over, further makes it relevant coverage.

This site is titled Saving Country Music, Sturgill latest stuff is anything but country. Sunday Valley disbanded before Sturgill even put out his first album.

For Simpson, who produced the album himself, country music is a strong foundation for heady experimentation and exploration. He’s been leading the charge to expand the genre’s reach, opening the doors for a new generation of rule-breaking musicians. His 2013 debut, High Top Mountain, introduced him as a bold and raucous innovator with a sharp burr of a voice and a rousing band behind him. He followed it up quickly with 2014’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, a headtrip album full of backmasked guitars, psychedelic Mellotron strings and heartfelt musings on the universe and his place within album proved a surprise international hit, placing high on yearend lists of at array of publications, including The New York Times, Rolling Stone, L.A. Times, Vogue, Stereogum, NPR Music and the Village Voice.

By the way what happened to his band Sunday Valley? Are they still with him or did he cut ties altogether. I tend to wonder if his new direction” is what caused the split. If so, I would rather follow the band than Sturgill in my opinion anymore. Now I don’t mind that an artist does a one off experiment album, but this seems to be too much.
