Steve Earle's latest album was released this week. The album is a tribute to one of Earle's heroes, Townes Van Zandt, and is appropriately entitled Townes. Our friends at Amazon are having a sale on this release - only $2.99 (US) for the digital download. Sale ends tomorrow (Friday, May 15). Love me some Townes Van Zandt, by whoever is performing it.
I dig the below track because it is more of a reworking than an actual cover.
Buy: Townes (2009)
($2.99 DRM-free digital download, US only)
Also, check out a great article on this release from last week's New York Times.
