A dozen years ago, Tift Merritt was mentioned in virtually every journalistic round up of rising talent in the alt-country and Americana scenes and here we are 12 years later waiting with baited breath for her new record “Stitch of the World” which has been produced with Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam. She also hits the UK for a series of dates at the end of this month, which we’ll remind you the details of below. We’ve only told you twice already.
Head over to NPR before Donald Trump privatises it out of existence for a stream of the whole record prior to its release.
