On April 21 I published an essay on Lucinda Williams called You Can Hear the Trajectory of Her Life. It is adapted and extended from a liner note essay I wrote for her remarkable new album, Good Souls Better Angels, released April 24. In many ways, this writing was thirty years in the making for me. I’m also proud to be helping her write her memoir for Crown Books. She and her team revealed our collaboration with this tweet. I feel deeply fortunate and grateful to be documenting her unique and moving life and work in this manner.
