Richard Thompson Returns with “13 Rivers” September 14th – Stereogum Premieres “My Rock, My Rope” Today
Richard Thompson is set to return with 13 Rivers on September 14th, 2018. A return to New West Records, the 13-song set is the Grammy nominated artist’s first self-produced album in over a decade and was recorded 100% analog in just ten days. It was engineered by Clay Blair (The War On Drugs) and features Thompson’s regular accompanists Michael Jerome (drums, percussion), Taras Prodaniuk (bass), and Bobby Eichorn (guitar). 13 Rivers is a bare-bones, emotionally direct album that speaks from the heart with no filters. “There are 13 songs on the record, and each one is like a river,” Thompson explains. “Some flow faster than others. Some follow a slow and winding current. They all culminate on this one body of work.” Uncut in the UK awarded the album 9 out of 10 stars, calling it his “best album in decades” and Mojo said in their 4 out of 5 Star review, “…this may be Richard Thompson’s most creative album in decades.”
