Legendary American roots producer T Bone Burnett is set to release a new collaboration with noted playwright Sam Shepard, with new album “Tooth Of Crime” due out on May 5th.
The album is Burnett’s first since 2006, and follows on his highly regarded production work on Alison Krauss and Robert Plant’s recent album of duets.
The collaboration between Burnett and Shepard began in 1996, when Burnett arranged the score for one of Shepard’s plays. Working with a crack team of session musicians, “Tooth Of Crime” looks to be one of the most exciting American roots albums of the year.
“Tooth Of Crime” by T Bone Burnett and Sam Shepard is released on May 5th.
