Lucinda Williams Good Souls Better Angels album coverMore than 40 years of making music has made Lucinda Williams one of the pioneers of the Americana sound.

On her latest album, claiming “It’s all come full circle”, she gets back to the the gritty roots of her early days.

This album is dark and heavy, bluesy and rocky, raw and direct. The focus is on this messed-up world we live in, from the constant barrage of a frightening news cycle, depression, domestic abuse and that man without a soul.

Co-written and co-produced with husband/manager Tom Overby and reuniting with producer Ray Kennedy (Car Wheels On A Gravel Road) this is Williams’ most confronting and powerful album yet.

Good Souls Better Angels by Lucinda Williams is out May 15 via Highway 20/Thirty Tigers.
