Sturgill Simpson Unveils The 2nd Trailer for ‘Sound & Fury’
Once christened by many as the savior of country music, Sturgill has proven time and time again that saving country music is not where his aspirations lie.
Don't get me wrong, Sturgill can still save it if he decides he wants to. Right now I'm convinced he could save the world if he set out to. But an artist is what he is. Since his breakout album Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, he's enjoyed roles in television, movies, won a Grammy, busked the CMAs, made new fans, and made angry old fans. All the while just being true to himself.
At Comic-Con in July Simpson announced his next project, Sound & Fury, a new album and anime film that will be out this fall.
"We went in without any preconceived notions and came out with a really sleazy, steamy rock n roll record. It’s definitely my most psychedelic,” Sturgill said. “And also my heaviest. I had this idea that it’d be really cool to animate some of these songs, and we ended up with a futuristic, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, samurai film.”
This week he unveiled the second trailer.
