Hear Eilen Jewell's new album 'Sundown Over Ghost Town'

Posted on

Otto Kitsinger

Four years ago, Tom Hanks told us he’d spend the summer blasting the Dandy Warhols, Booker T. & the MG’s, and Eilen Jewell on his car stereo with the windows rolled down. Packed with vivid lyrics, steel guitars, and hot licks, Jewell’s Americana-driven brand of country music sounds tailor-made for sweltering, stagnant summer nights—and just in time for the season, Jewell will release her sixth studio album, Sundown Over Ghost Town, next week. EW has an exclusive premiere of the record, which is packed with more of the pristine folk jams that’ve defined Jewell’s career so far and earned her comparisons to Lucinda Williams along the way.

Check out Sundown Over Ghost Town and tour dates below, and pre-order the record here.
