Sturgill Simpson will release new concept album ‘The Ballad of Dood and Juanita’ on 20th August 2021.

The album will be available digitally and on CD, with a vinyl release to follow on 3rd December. It’s Simpson’s third record in a a year.

“I just wanted to write a story—not a collection of songs that tell a story, but an actual story, front to back,” says Simpson. He describes the concept album as a “rollercoaster ride through all the styles of traditional country and bluegrass and mountain music that I love, including gospel and a cappella.”  

Written and recorded in less than a week, the new album features the same ace musicians who played on last year’s “Cuttin’ Grass” albums and is what Simpson calls “a simple tale of either redemption or revenge.”
