John Prine's new album released 14th April 2018

Summer's End from John's new album The Tree of Forgiveness:

This is his first new all original album for 13 years, produced by Dave Cobb and released on his own 'Oh Boy' label.
Known best for his iconic anti-war song 'Sam Stone' and for songs such as 'Hello In There' and 'Angel From Montgomery', the old gentleman just gets better and better.
He's 71 now and his voice has become gruffer and deeper, due in part to his battle with squamous cell cancer on the right side of his neck, but his songwriting and performance skills remain truly excellent.
There is a lovely video of John's NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert from March 12, 2018 here:

Reset the settings to 1080 HD for maximum enjoyment.
