Richard Thompson  has announced his newest solo album Still, which will be released June 23 via Fantasy. The record will be produced by Jeff Tweedy of Wilco.

Tweedy stated in a press release, “Richard’s been one of my favorite guitar players for a very long time. When I think about it, he’s also one of my favorite songwriters and favorite singers. He’s the Ultimate Triple Threat. Getting to work closely with him on this record was a truly rewarding experience, not to mention a great thrill. And he keeps alive my streak of working exclusively with artists who make me look good as a producer.”
