New Sturgill Simpson Album Finished – But No Release Date Yet
The moment we've been waiting for since May 2014, may soon be at hand. With the release of Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, on that May day of '14, Sturgill Simpson restored the faith of so many country music lovers in country music. And it is now being reported that new Sturgill music is on the horizon.
In fact, the Kentucky native says that he has finished his next project, but will be taking some time off before releasing it.
“I don’t want to put it out just yet, because I know I’m just going to have to turn around and do what I just did all over again,” Simpson tells GQ. “Quite honestly, I need about six months at home with my family.”
According to Simpson the time off will also help him figure out what's next.
“Hopefully, instead of being out on the road, I’ll be doing what’s-next-what’s-next, you know?” he explains. “For me, it’s all about being in the moment and having freedom. In the mechanics of the industry, the art comes last. But the art is what can’t be put on a timeline. You can’t say, ‘Well, I’m going to make a record in May because that’s when the producer has a window.’ So just recording and getting things out is paramount for me. That has to be spontaneous. You’re gonna bottle this time capsule. You don’t want the band to even know the songs."
Take some time off, Sturgill. As much as you need or want. Lord knows you've earned it - and we will be right here waiting for you whenever it is you decide you're ready to drop some musical genius bombs on us again. Check out the full write up in GQ.
