Swamp Dogg has announced a new album.

The R&B and soul musician’s country LP, ‘Sorry You Couldn’t Make It’, will arrive on March 6 via Joyful Noise Recordings, and features Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Jenny Lewis, Channy Leaneagh of Poliça, and John Prine, among others.

The first cut from the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Love, Loss, And Auto-Tune’, Sleeping Without You Is A Dragg, explores 1970s instrumentation with organs and tremolo guitars, as well as Swamp Dogg’s soulful, measured voice. Vernon takes on piano duties here, while Leaneagh and Lewis provide backing vocals.

The 77 year-old, real name Jerry Williams, said of the turn towards country music: “If you notice, I use a lot of horns. But actually, if you listen to my records before I start stacking shit on it, I’m country. I sound country.” He added, “I'm anxious because it's like I've taken all my money and put it on one horse. But I believe in this horse.”
