This is the first album from the 3-time Grammy Award winner in more than four years, this time on her own label, Highway 20 Records. Featuring 20 new songs, this album is full of sweet-and-sour blues, acoustic layers and barebones rock ‘n’ roll. There’s also many important artists on here: Bill Frisell, Tony Joe White, Stuart Marthis, Ian McLagan, Pete Thomas, Davey Faragaher and Jakob Dylan. Poignant, intimate moments flood the record: These are some of the fullest arrangements Williams has ever recorded, and she challenges herself profoundly. At 61, it looks like she’s at a high point in her career, and has no plans of slowing down. And for that, we’re grateful.
