Sturgill Simpson will be releasing his new concept album, The Ballad of Dood and Juanita, on CD on August 20th, vinyl release will be December 3rd. This is the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter's third album in twelve months and his most ambitious project to date.. Written and recorded in less than a week, and featuring the same ace musicians who played on last year's Cuttin' Grass albums, the record tells a classic American story of a Civil War-era couple torn apart by violence and reunited by lovewhat Simpson calls "a simple tale of either redemption or revenge."
I just wanted to write a storynot a collection of songs that tell a story, but an actual story, front to back, says Simpson. He describes the concept album as a rollercoaster ride through all the styles of traditional country and bluegrass and mountain music that I love, including gospel and a cappella.

In a career marked by risk-taking and rule-breaking, Simpson has previously challenged genre conventions with 2016s soul-inflected A Sailors Guide to Earth, which won the Grammy award for Country Album of the Year and was nominated for Album of the Year, and 2019s Sound & Fury, which was nominated for Rock Album of the Year.
The Ballad of Dood and Juanita is available on an indie record store-exclusive CD that includes a printed illustration from the album artwork. A standard CD is also available. On 12/3/21, the vinyl will be available on indie-exclusive Translucent Natural vinyl, and will include another 11x11 print of the illustration on the front cover. Standard black vinyl is also available. Support your local independent record store.
