Welcome Back: Lucinda Williams
The folk-country songwriter returns with a new album, but warns it might be “hard for people to listen to”.
Lucinda Williams isn’t kidding when she says her new album might be a difficult listen. The Ghosts Of Highway 20 delves into her past to unearth a batch of deeply personal songs about longing, hope, repression and the death of her parents.
It also happens to be an intensely beautiful record, one that bridges blues, country and roots-rock. Nearly 40
years after she first started out, the sexagenarian three-time Grammy winner is enjoying an extraordinary run of form.
