Sturgill Simpson has detailed his next record and an accompanying film.

The Kentucky country and roots singer-songwriter will simultaneously release 'Sound & Fury' and a new anime film of the same name on Netflix on September 27. Check out the record's artwork and tracklist below, alongside an imaginative video for the rock and roll jam of a first single Sing Along.

Produced by the Grammy Award-winner and his band, the album will serve as a companion to the anime film, created by Simpson alongside manga artist Takashi Okazaki and filmmaker Junpei Mizusaki. Each of the 10 tracks on the record will provide a soundtrack for the film's narrative.

'Sound & Fury' follows up Simpson's last studio LP, 2016's 'A Sailor's Guide to Earth'.

'Sound & Fury' tracklist:

1. Ronin
2. Remember to Breathe
3. Sing Along
4. A Good Look
5. Make Art Not Friends
6. Best Clockmaker on Mars
7. All Said and Done
8. Last Man Standing
9. Mercury in Retrograde
10. Fastest Horse in Town

Photo: Semi Song Sturgill Simpson is a country music outlier. His first three albums were rich, detailed journeys through left-field Americana that drew favourable comparisons to Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. His fourth, ‘Sound & Fury’, which is also a Netflix special, diverges from edgy but ultimately traditional-sounding songs in favour of scuzzy rock and guitar argy bargy. The results are mixed.

We certainly live in a time where people love to label everything and everyone, but ‘A Sailor’s Guide To Earth’ proves that tagging this Nashville-based troubadour is completely reductive. Is he country, bluegrass, rock ‘n’ roll, soul, Americana? The answer is all of those and more. Much, much more.
