Sturgill Simpson has announced a new LP dropping this Friday called Cuttin’ Grass Vol. 1 which was previously announced when he did a Ryman Auditorium livestream earlier this year.

In a new post on Instagram (which will likely get deleted quick), Simpson said “Welp,..was hoping to surprise everybody on Thursday but somebody somewhere (Germany) got all excited and just couldn’t hold their horses.”

He continues…

“Anyway,..’Cuttin’ Grass Vol. 1 – The Butcher Shoppe Sessions’ is dropping 10/16 (midnight Thursday)” and he clarifies “and yes,..this is actually the album cover.” He also shared a shot of the group of musicians he recorded it with.
