Fresh Stuff from Jason Isbell

Americana favorite Jason Isbell and his band, the 400 Unit, recently dropped a new album.

Titled The Nashville Sound, the record sees Isbell doing what he does best: crafting honest tunes about what he sees, feels and experiences. As the album’s producer Dave Cobb told Rolling Stone, “He takes these seemingly normal things and turns them into beautiful songs about life and relationships and family.”

The standout track is “If We Were Vampires,” an exploration of love, death and loss. But the album as a whole is a testament to Isbell’s evolution as a songwriter and his changing perspective.

“Right when I started touring, there was this wariness I had of the world outside of my small town,” he told Rolling Stone. “But I’m not that person anymore, and I was never completely that person. The guy I’m talking about…has grown up in a naturally sheltered existence, then he gets out and sees the rest of the world and doesn’t understand it. It’s like the bridge is burning as he crosses it. He realizes there’s no way to go back, and I think that’s scary for a lot of people.”

Tracklist:

1. Last of My Kind
2. Cumberland Gap
3. Tupelo”
4. “White Man’s World
5. If We Were Vampires
6. Anxiety
7. Molotov
8. Chaos and Clothes
9. Hope the High Road
10. Something to Love
