GRAMMY Award winner Sturgill Simpson has announced early details for “SOUND & FURY,” the title of both his much-anticipated, new album arriving this fall via Elektra Records AND the original Japanese anime film he created with some of the biggest names in its genre simultaneously being released by Netflix. The first trailer for “SOUND & FURY,” including film footage and music from the forthcoming album, was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend during a panel featuring Simpson and two of the filmmakers, writer/director Jumpei Mizusaki and character designer Takashi Okazaki.
Simpson comments, “We went in without any preconceived notions and came out with a really sleazy, steamy rock n roll record. It’s definitely my most psychedelic. And also my heaviest. I had this idea that it’d be really cool to animate some of these songs, and we ended up with a futuristic, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, samurai film.”
