Old 97’s – New Album in Progress
During the last couple weeks, the Old 97’s have been recording their 12 studio album. Furthermore, they’ve been working with Vance Powell who also produced their last album Graveyard Whistling. Whose credits include Phish, Chris Stapleton, Jack White, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, The Raconteurs and many more.
While recording at Vance’s own Sputnik Sound in Nashville, not only did they get a lot done. But also experienced the the tragic tornadoes that hit Nashville and the amazing response of the community immediately after. From their website: “It’s a great city and just a great group of people and we’re proud to have spent so much time there.”
While in the studio they had a number of interesting folks drop by. Jason Isbell loaned Rhett a guitar. Jack White came in to talk baseball and guitars and furniture. And photographer Vivian Wang took some fantastic photos in the studio. From the band: “We can’t wait for you to hear this one — we’re very proud of it.” No street date yet but it’s on the horizon.
