At the beginning of the lockdown I started writing country songs to console myself. Folk and country-type forms being the shapes that came most easily to me in a comfort food sort of way. 'Guess Again' is a good example of the success I was having at pushing the world away, counting my blessings - taking stock in my good fortune to have love in my life. Just a few weeks later, things began to sound like 'Love Is The King' - a little more frayed around the edges with a lot more fear creeping in. Still hopeful, but definitely discovering the limits of my own ability to self soothe.
It's some of his finest work with or without a band, with sly, easeful country lopes ('Opaline'), genuinely sweet declarations of love ('Even I Can See'), and his zingiest Midwestern-Neil guitar leads since 2004's A Ghost Is Born. 'Gwendolyn' is a rocker you'd give your left arm to see him stretch out in concert; 'Bad Day Lately' is a consolation for the fact that you won't be able to for a long while. Here's to silver linings.
