Sturgill Simpson Announces New Album The Ballad of Dood and Juanita

Reto Sterchi

Sturgill Simpson has announced a new album titled The Ballad of Dood and Juanita. The upcoming release is his first new original project 2019's Sound & Fury, and features Willie Nelson on the track "Juanita." According to a press release, Simpson wrote and recorded the entire album in less than one week.

Isbell spoke of the concept album in a statement saying, “I just wanted to write a story—not a collection of songs that tell a story, but an actual story, front to back." He called it “a simple tale of either redemption or revenge."

The Ballad of Dood and Juanita will be released digitally and on CD on August 20; a vinyl edition will be available December 3.
