Lucinda Williams New Album and Mood Change

I've written before on AWT that I was no fan of Lucinda's previous release West. The whole girl gets done wrong by a loser then gets dark and dreary act was old on on the album. There were few great songs on the album but what worked on World Without Tears slid into a disturbing creepiness on West. I say all of this because Williams is absolutely one of my favorite artists. I am not one of these people wanting Carwheels II. I like her eclecticism. I just want her to do what she does best by mixing styles and moods.

Based on a review I stmbled upon on, I may get my wish. Her new album, which will be titled Little Honey, is coming out in October. Here is an excerpt from the review and interview done by >MusicRemedy

Lucinda Williams has always been adept at painting landscapes of the soul, illuminating the spirit’s shadowy nooks and shimmering crannies -- but she’s never captured the sun breaking through the clouds as purely as on her new Lost Highway release, Little Honey. “I’m in a different phase of my life, so there are more happy moments on this album,” the singer-songwriter says of her ninth studio set...Williams wastes no time signaling that mood change, leading into Little Honey's opener, “Real Love” with a false start riff that's the six-string equivalent of a friendly wink – then sidling into the tune's hard-rocking vibe with a sensual slink that underscores the passion of finding exactly what that title indicates. The bluesy physicality of that tune is echoed in several of Little Honey's tracks

Bring it on! I can't wait.

Here is live video of her doing the first song off the ne album Real Love (Warning the Audio is poor):

sadly, chip, i am close to being one of those dudes that does want "car wheels II", i cant help it, i give each album an open-minded listen, and i can like some of it, but man, i still compare it all to the masterwork...i know thats bad, and i hope i can get over it to be honest...

I'm just so psyched that "Jailhouse Tears" is gonna be on the new one. I saw her do it with John Doe (one of my heroes) and it was astonishingly good. Heard today that Elvis Costello (one of my other heroes) won the honor on the recorded version... can't wait!

Car Wheels is one of the greatest albums of all time from a true American poet. I say Car Wheels 2

Lucinda Williams certainly bonded with an audience in Charleston, SC.

Despite a lyrics book onstage, she flubbed a few lines and commented she didn't have contacts. A fan ran up to the edge of the stage, offering her glasses!

My photo shows her reaction. Take a peek at this warm, human moment.
