Sturgill Simpson is releasing a bluegrass album this week

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson has announced that his new album, Cuttin’ Grass Vol. 1 – The Butcher Shoppe Sessions, will be released this Friday, October 16.

The 20-song LP will feature new renditions of tracks from each of his previous projects — including fan favorites like “Long White Line” and “Turtles All the Way Down” — performed alongside bluegrass musicians.

Cuttin’ Grass is Simpson’s first release since his 2019 album SOUND & FURY, which was accompanied by an animated Netflix movie and a graphic novel.
