The official music video for Sturgill Simpson’s rendition of Nirvana’s “In Bloom” can now be viewed at SturgillSimpson.com;  “In Bloom” is the second song unveiled from Simpson’s highly anticipated new album, A Sailor’s Guide To Earth, which will be released April 15th via Atlantic Records. Each album pre-order comes with instant downloads of “In Bloom” as well as “Brace For Impact (Live A Little).”
Produced by Simpson, A Sailor’s Guide To Earth was written—beginning to end—as a letter to his first child, who arrived during the summer of 2014, and features eight original songs as well as “In Bloom.”
Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 1.03.35 PMRecorded primarily at Nashville’s The Butcher Shoppe, Simpson was joined in the studio by Grammy Award-winning engineer David Ferguson (Johnny Cash, John Prine, “Cowboy” Jack Clement) and assistant engineer Sean Sullivan. Along with members of his touring band, the album features Dave Roe on bass, Dan Dugmore on steel guitar, Dougie Wilkinson on bagpipes, Garo Yellin and Arthur Cook on cello, Jonathan Dinklage and Whitney LaGrange on violin and special guests The Dap-Kings.
