Richard Thompson Preps 'Electric' for New West Records
Electric was produced by Buddy Miller (Solomon Burke, Patty Griffin) at his home studio in Nashville. It features drummer Michael Jerome (John Cale, the Toadies) and bassist Taras Prodaniuk (Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams), plus a guest appearances from Alison Krauss and session fiddler Stuart Duncan.
Thompson told Rolling Stone, "I thought it would be good to have [the album] sound fairly garage, if you like — slightly trashed out. I think it is, in a good way. [It's] the opposite of smooth."
See the tracklist below and the album art above.
