And you can have a listen. Rolling Stone Country reports: “One year after popping up in the end credits of British documentary The Fear of 13, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires’ “The Color of a Cloudy Day” is receiving a proper release. The song joins Amazon’s ever-growing “Amazon Acoustics” playlist this morning, appearing alongside stripped-down recordings by John Hiatt, Ashley Monroe and Rodney Crowell. “The Color of a Cloudy Day” drapes Isbell and Shires’ harmonies over acoustic guitars, swelling violins and an understated drum loop. It’s light and lovely, swimming in reverb and moving forward at a moody, measured pace. Collaboratively written in the couple’s living room and kitchen on the outskirts of Nashville, the song also sets the stage for Shires’ upcoming solo album, My Piece of Land, whose songs feature a handful of rare Isbell co-writes.Shires will promote My Piece of Land with an extended cross-country tour this fall, including a December run through her home state of Texas. Isbell remains on the road, too, playing a steady stream of theaters and festivals until the winter holidays.
