Ahead of releasing her memoir Don't Tell Anybody the Secrets I Told You later this month, the legendary Lucinda Williams has announced a new album — previewed today by lead single "New York Comeback."

Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart will be told on June 30 via Highway 20 / Thirty Tigers. It follows 2020's Good Souls Better Angels, released prior to the singer-songwriter suffering a stroke later that year.

Produced by Williams, Tom Overby and Ray Kennedy, the album features a veritable who's who of guest vocalists: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's Patti Scialfa, Angel Olsen, Margo Price, Jesse Malin, Buddy Miller, the ReplacementsTommy Stinson and more.

Apt lead single "New York Comeback" features vocals from Springsteen and Scialfa. A triumphant return indeed!
