David Rawlings announces new album – due August

Songwriter and guitarist David Rawlings, he of “and Gillian Welch” fame, has announced the release of his freshly pressed third album “Poor David’s Almanack” which will see the light of day on August 11th via Acony Records. For the new album, Rawlings leaves the Dave Rawlings Machine moniker behind and serves up a mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in what’s described as “ageless American vernacular”. The album of ten new songs was crafted by Ken Scott (Beatles, David Bowie) and Matt Andrews on analog tape during a week of sessions at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.  Rawlings and longtime compatriot Gillian Welch joined together with Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of Dawes.  Look out for a review soon on AUK.
