stone steel album

From Americana UK News via Jay Farrar mailing list:

Jay Farrar's new album "Stone, Steel and Bright Lights" will be released on June 8. With Farrar's backing band Canyon, the album features two new songs, “6 String Belief” and “Doesn’t Have to Be This Way”, along with selections from Jay’s solo career and an electrifying version of Pink Floyd’s “Lucifer Sam” into Neil Young’s “Like Hurricane” from The Blue Note in Columbia, MO.

In an interview, Farrar commented that Young's 'Like a Hurricane,' served as a common-interest song between him and Canyon.

"That's a song I haven't really done in my past. It's probably (Young's) most bombastic song. We were looking for a song to close out the set, and that's what we went for.' "

Also, comes word of "Jay Farrar – Live in Seattle" will be available for download on February 27th. The download is from The Showbox in Seattle from July 24, 2003. Includes a version of Townes Van Zandt’s “White Freightliner Blues”.

The download will be available in MP3 or FLAC format and also includes downloadable artwork.
