Double LP Co-produced by Grammy Award Winner Don Was!

Blessed is the stunning follow-up album to Little Honey from the three-time Grammy Award winner Lucinda Williams. Considered by many to be one of America's greatest living songwriters, Williams lives up to that and more delivering 12 new songs that cover an even wider emotional spectrum than her previous work, without moving too far in any one direction.

Blessed opens with the gritty kiss-off "Buttercup" then moves seamlessly into the sultry blues of "Born to Be Loved". Williams delves into a heavier subject as she questions the motives for a suicide on the hard-driving "Seeing Black", which features blistering guitar from Elvis Costello. The thoughtful title track builds to a melodic climax as it offers an eye-opening look at what's right in front of us, but too often unnoticed. The poignant and powerful "Soldier's Song" simultaneously tells a tragic story of the soldier overseas and his wife and child back home. On the gorgeous "Kiss Like Your Kiss", Williams lays down one of the most beautiful and fragile vocals she has ever recorded. The original version of "Kiss Like Your Kiss" appeared on the True Blood: Music From the HBO Original Series - Volume 2 and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.

This LP version includes the album on CD as well as bonus material on CD titled "The Kitchen Tapes". These are the demos Williams recorded of the songs that became Blessed right as they were born at her kitchen table, where she does much of her writing.
