Lucinda Williams is getting ready for the release of her upcoming album, Blessed. The album is scheduled for a March 1, 2011 release on Lost Highway. The album will have 12 songs, and Lucinda paired with Grammy Award-winning producer Don Was, and co-producers Eric Liljestrand and Tom Overby.
Elvis Costello was recruited to play guitar on the track “Seeing Black.” There will also be appearances on the album from Rami Jaffe on keyboards, and Matthew Sweet on vocals. The album will also contain a new version of Kiss Like Your Kiss, which originally appeared on the True Blood: Music From The HBO Original Series – Volume 2 soundtrack - a song that was recently nominated for a Grammy for Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.
Lucinda, a three-time Grammy winner, will also release a deluxe edition of Blessed with bonus material titled The Kitchen Tapes.
