    Lucinda Williams has announced she is returning with a new album titled Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart, out June 30th via Highway 20 Records/Thirty Tigers. As a preview, the country icon has teamed up with Bruce Springsteen for the first single, “New York Comeback.”

    Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart was recorded while Williams was recovering from a stroke she suffered a few years back. At the time, she wasn’t able to write songs using her guitar and continued collaborating with her husband/manager Tom Overby while also bringing in singer-songwriter Jessie Malin to co-write three tracks and flesh out melodies. Williams’ longtime road manager, Travis Stephens, also co-wrote six songs on the album.

    Produced by Williams, Overby and Ray Kennedy, Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart features backing vocals from Bruce Springsteen, Margo Price, Angel Olsen, Tommy Stinson, Jeremy Ivey, and more.


    Springsteen and his wife Patty Scialfa contribute backing melodies to “New York Comeback,” a triumphant rock song featuring rousing lyrics like, “Let me have the final say/ One last chance to do it my way/ One last shot, one last swing/ One final song to sing.” Stream the track below.

    Williams’ last album was 2020’s Good Souls Better Angels. She’ll be touring extensively in support of the new album, including a handful of co-headlining dates with Big Thief.
