Lucinda Williams announces new LP, shares “New York Comeback” ft. Bruce Springsteen & Patti Scialfa

Lucinda Williams has announced a new album, Stories From A Rock N Roll Heart, due June 30 via Highway 20 Records/Thirty Tigers. It’s her first new album since 2020’s Good Souls Better Angels, and her first since suffering a stroke in November 2020 tha left her motor skills partially impaired — including her ability to play the guitar. In writing the album, without her typical method, she called on her husband Tom Overby, friend and collaborator Jesse Malin, longtime road manager Travis Stephens, and more to co-write and collaborate. Additional contributions come from co-producer and engineer Ray Kennedy, and backing vocalists Jeremy Ivey, Buddy Miller, Angel Olsen, Margo Price, Tommy Stinson, and more.

Lucinda tapped Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa for backing vocals on the title track and “New York Comeback,” which she released today. “New York Comeback” is classic country-infused rock, with earnest lyrics and standout harmonies. Listen to the single and check out the artwork and tracklist for Stories From A Rock N Roll Heart below.

Lucinda’s memoir Don’t Tell Anybody The Secrets I Told You comes out on April 25 via Crown, and she’s touring in the spring and summer, including dates with Big Thief, and NYC shows at City Winery on April 20, 21, 22, and 25. See all dates below.
