Richard Thompson has announced a new solo album called Still, which is produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. It's out June 23 on Fantasy. They've also shared the first single, "Beatnik Walking"; listen to it above via Aquarium Drunkard.
"Richard's been one of my favorite guitar players for a very long time," said Tweedy in a press release. "When I think about it, he's also one of my favorite songwriters and favorite singers. He's the Ultimate Triple Threat. Getting to work closely with him on this record was a truly rewarding experience, not to mention a great thrill. And he keeps alive my streak of working exclusively with artists who make me look good as a producer."
