Steve Earle And The Dukes Have Announced A New Album

‘J.T.’ will pay tribute to Earle’s son, Justin Townes Earle, who passed away in August. The record will feature 10 covers of tracks written by Justin, and a new song penned by Steve just after his death. It will arrive digitally on January 4, what would have been the late singer-songwriter’s 39th birthday, with a physical release set to follow on March 19.

All of the artist advances and royalties from ‘J.T.’ will be donated to a trust for Etta St. James Earle, the three-year-old daughter of Justin and Jenn Earle.
