Jason Isbell Announces Live Album, Expanded Debut Reissue
A pair of new Jason Isbell albums will be coming out over the next few months, including a live document of his historic six sold-out shows at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium last fall.
Live From the Ryman is set for release on Oct. 19. “When I started having success at the Ryman, it made me believe that I had moved to the right place,” the singer-songwriter, an Alabama native, said of his move to Nashville. “Because how could you dislike your town if they do that for you? That’s amazing.”
The 13-track album is made up of songs from his three most recent LPs with his band the 400 Unit: Southeastern (from 2013), Something More Than Free (2015) and The Nashville Sound (2017). You can find the full track listing below for the live album, which concludes with "If We Were Vampires," which won a Grammy earlier this year.
The live LP doesn't include any of the Tom Petty covers he sang onstage each night at the Ryman.
But you don't have to wait until October for a new Isbell album. His first solo album after leaving Drive-By Truckers, 2007's Sirens of the Ditch, will be coming out as a deluxe reissue on July 13. The expanded album includes four previously unreleased songs, including "Whisper," which you can listen to below. You can find a full track listing for that album below too.
Plus, the first trailer for a new movie version of A Star Is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga features a song Isbell penned. "I wrote the song Bradley is singing here," he said on Twitter. "They did a great job with it. Go see the movie when it comes out."
You can watch the trailer below.
In addition to all of this, Isbell announced he will be returning to the Ryman for another six-show run on Oct. 22-24 and 26-28. Tickets for these performances go on sale Friday at 10AM ET. You can order tickets and find more information at the Ryman's website.
