The long awaited new Lucinda Williams album finally has a name, a release date (Feb 13) and an entry at Amazon. I think it's finally happening.

Lost Highway has posted snippets of some songs, this link right here should take you, for the time being, to a full version of "Fancy Funeral." The Lost Highway audio player quality is usually terrible, I guess they fuzz it all out deliberately, so whether the scratchy 45" buzz is on the real thing I dunno. Fancy Funeral sounds sweet though, sparse and that good kind of Lucinda-sad. For ages the album was given the title "The Knowing" but that new song (she's been doing it live) doesn't seem to have made the final track list.
