|Tony Joe White Rain Crow Limited Vinyl LP
"With a deep, come-hither voice" (Mother Jones) and an "ability to turn that throbbing, thumping uh-uhh hazy guitar beat" (PopMatters), the "King of Swamp Rock" Tony Joe White will release his 19th studio album, Rain Crow, on May 27th via Yep Roc Records. Recorded at his own studio and produced by his son, Jody White, Rain Crow summons recollections of long ago, when animals foretold the weather, tongue-talking worshipers proved their faith by handling snakes and a "bad wind" could drive a man to edge of insanity. The nine-song set features new compositions White wrote over the past three years, including co-writes with his wife, Leann, and Billy Bob Thornton on "The Middle of Nowhere." Known for popularizing swamp music, White has written gems like "Polk Salad Annie" and "Rainy Night in Georgia," and has had his songs performed by Elvis, Ray Charles, and Tina Turner.
