    You wanted a flower, but turned out a weed

    emails says the 20th. Could definitely see there being no singles released beforehand.

    Saw someone on Twitter float the idea that this could be his Red Headed Stranger.

    I can't wait to hear his song with Willie. Seems like that'll be a good one!

    I've loved every direction he's gone in and will continue to do so I'm sure but I gotta say I'm thrilled he's hanging out in the old-time/trad country lane for a bit longer

    From the Rough Trade pre-order page:

    "Sturgill Simpson returns with a brand new concept album, The Ballad of Dood and Juanita. This is the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter's third album in twelve months and his most ambitious project to date. Written and recorded in less than a week, and featuring the same ace musicians who played on last year's Cuttin' Grass albums, the record tells a classic American story of a Civil War-era couple torn apart by violence and reunited by love—what Simpson calls "a simple tale of either redemption or revenge."

    Also, I'm a big fan of that "natural" color LP

    For all that people on here have spent the past 24 hours ripping on Pitchfork, that review is actually very well written and insightful.
