Steve Martin and Edie Brickell - new album due April 23, 2013
Steve Martin tweeted today to call attention to the announcement of a new album due out on April 23, 2013 featuring himself and Mrs. Paul Simon, Edie Brickell. Martin has won kudos in recent years for his work on the banjo, and Brickell has built a solid songwriting career on the popularity of her mid-90's hit "What I Am". This is a case of two very interesting talents you'd never imagine working together sharing a creative process. The results are unpredictable, but with producer Peter Asher (James Taylor, Elvis Costello) at the helm, and guest appearances from Esperanza Spalding, The Steep Canyon Rangers and members of Nickel Creek, you're assured of a set of intriguing performances.
And as long as King Tut doesn't break into a chorus of "What I Am", all will be well.
