Richard Thompson Preps 'Electric' for New West Records
By Alex HudsonWhen Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell hit the road this spring with co-headliner Richard Thompson, Harris and Crowell won't be the only ones promoting a new album. British guitar legend Thompson has an album of his own, Electric, due out on February 5 through 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.
