Two of Americana UK’s favourite Americans spoke to Rolling Stone about their mutual admiration which may have been sparked by Jesse Malin’s tribute to Lucinda Williams on his 2007 album, Gutter In The Glitter. They spoke about their common ground, the songwriting process and their political leanings (both supported Bernie Saunders) amongst other things. While the pair have shared a stage at various times in the past they’ve never played together and Rolling Stone asked them if they would ever collaborate with both saying that this was a distinct possibility. Whether this was tongue in cheek is not known with Malin telling the magazine, “We’ll do like, Otis Redding and Carla Thomas.” You can read the whole interview here.
