First new John Prine album in 13 years on the way

Unlucky for some, unless you’re a baker.  Rolling Stone reports: “John Prine, whose 2017 highlights included headlining the Newport Folk Festival, releasing his first-ever book, John Prine Beyond Words, and winning Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Honors & Awards ceremony in September, already has a memorable 2018 shaping up, including a spring [US] tour and the release of new music.  The new LP will be Prine’s first consisting of original music in 13 years. More details about the upcoming record are expected soon. Prine’s Fair & Square, his last LP of new solo material, was released in 2005 and earned him a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.”
