Multimedia trek promises to be “an experience unlike any other”
We have yet to hear the whole thing (still waiting for our copy in the mail), but from what we’ve read the new Lucinda Williams LP Stories from a Rock N Roll Heart could very well be the rock album to beat in 2023.
This week, the three-time Grammy Award winner announced a fall tour in support of her critically acclaimed new album Stories from a Rock N Roll Heart. The “Don’t Tell Anybody The Secrets” tour promises to be a multi-media experience with Williams sharing stories and anecdotes while performing songs from throughout her celebrated career.
The tour will kick off on October 7th at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and will include stops in St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Toronto, Boston and New York City. See a full list of tour dates below.
Following its June 30th release, Stories from a Rock N Roll Heart received high praise from the press in what many have referred to as a “comeback” album following Williams’ 2020 stroke. It’s easy to see why when, three years later, the 70-year-old Lucinda is found in top form, creating a welcoming vibe while delivering a song cycle as hard-nosed as anything she’s ever done in her 45 years making music. It certainly pairs well with her recently released memoir Don’t Tell Anybody The Secrets I Told You, which was released in April and will play a key role on this tour.
Stories from a Rock N Roll Heart was produced by Williams, Tom Overby, and Ray Kennedy, who also engineered. The album includes guest backing vocals by Jeremy Ivey, Jesse Malin, Buddy Miller, Angel Olsen, Margo Price, Patti Scialfa, Bruce Springsteen and Tommy Stinson.
If you haven’t already, please make sure you go out and buy a copy of this record. It’s not on any of the streaming services, and it’s about time you started buying physical media again.
