About Sturgill Simpson
Sturgill Simpson isn’t one to rest on his laurels, which is why, less than a year after the release of his critically acclaimed debut, High Top Mountain, the singer-songwriter is coming out with his captivating and wholly unique sophomore album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, on May 13, 2014, through his own label, High top Mountain Records.
The album title – an allusion to Ray Charles’ groundbreaking 1962 record, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music – hints at the psychedelic sound s found within, a departure from Simpson’s first album, which drew comparisons to the music of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard.
Where some artists find inspiration from other music, Simpson found his in books, devouring religious texts both ancient and modern.
