As we previously reported, Son Volt’s Jay Farrar, Centro-Matic’s Will Johnson, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and Varnaline’s Anders Parker will appear on New Multitudes, which will be released on Feb. 28 on Rounder Records. The album is a homage to Woody Guthrie and will feature interpretations of unrecorded Guthrie lyrics.
Under the invitation of Guthrie’s daughter, Nora, each artist was allowed to go through the songwriter’s notebooks and scratch pads to gain insight on the artist and his unfinished work.
And now we have an exclusive sneak peek into the album’s recording process. The clip shows studio footage of Farrar, Johnson, James and Parker recording the album. You can take a look below and check out the album’s Facebook page here.
