Listen to new Townes Van Zandt album in full

Well that’s it for this week dear readers, and what a wretched one it’s been in various ways. We leave you anyway with something decidely not-wretched. The lovely people over at NPR Music are currently streaming a new Townes Van Zandt record on their site which comes out a week today. The album is a new collection of previously unreleased recordings from the  late singer-songwriter (22 years now) which includes early drafts of songs like ‘Pancho and Lefty’ and ‘Rex’s Blues’ recorded with Bill Hedgepeth in 1973. It also features two previously unreleased songs – ‘Sky Blue’ and ‘All I Need’ (which you can hear below) along with covers of songs by Richard Dobson and Tom Paxton. Head over to NPR for a bit more about the album as well as the stream itself. Have a good one.
