Lucinda Williams unabashedly takes on some of the human, social and political issues of our day with her boldest and most direct album to date, Good Souls Better Angels out April 24th on Highway20/Thirty Tigers. Following the release of ‘Man Without A Soul’, the first powerful track to be taken from the forthcoming album, Lucinda has this week released raw album opener, ‘You Can’t Rule Me’, which can be listened to here.
It seems a little bit ridiculous to be reviewing Christmas albums in October, but given that it’s snowed in parts of the UK over the weekend, perhaps it’s exactly the right time. It certainly felt like Christmas when I was reviewing Engelbert Humperdinck’s new seasonable album, ‘Warmest Christmas Wishes’, The Hump’s first Christmas album in almost forty years. The new release is set to come out on November 16.
