Album Features Songs Co-written With Dan Auerbach, Phil Spector and Roger Cook

John Prine, 71, will release The Tree of Forgiveness, his first album of new music in 13 years, on April 13.

Produced by Grammy winner Dave Cobb, the 10-song collection was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A with Prine’s longtime band and special guests Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires. Credited on the new material are Prine’s co-writers Pat McLaughlin, Roger Cook, Dan Auerbach, Keith Sykes and Phil Spector.

The Tree of Forgiveness follows an artist of the year win at the 2017 Americana Music Honors & Awards and the release of his first book, John Prine Beyond Words.

Several shows have been added to his 2018 tour schedule through December including two nights at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Below are the album’s full track listing and a complete list of tour dates. A CD copy of the new album comes with each ticket purchase.
