Jakob Dylan has announced plans for an upcoming nation-wide tour with his band Jakob Dylan and Three Legs, which features Neko Case and Kelly Hogan. The tour is set to kick off April 9th in Pittsburgh, PA in support of his latest album Women and Country set for release April 6th. Jakob has also announced that he will be appearring on The Late Show with David Letterman on April 21st and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on May 13th.
Recorded in Los Angeles, CA, Women and Country finds Jakob reuniting with acclaimed Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winning producer T-Bone Burnett (Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Crazy Heart), who produced the Wallflowers’ 1996 breakthrough album Bringing Down the Horse. Jakob is also joined by Neko Case and Kelly Hogan, who provide back-up vocals on 8 of the albumâ€™s 11 tracks.
Soulful yet striking and ripe with sublime beauty, Jakob reaches new majestic heights on this release with his distinct voice and unparalleled songwriting. This, coupled with T-Bone Burnettâ€™s haunting production and the stirringly rich vocals by Neko Case and Kelly Hogan, creates a powerful and melancholic experience for the listener.
Backing Jakob Dylan up on the albumâ€™s 11 songs are T Bone Burnettâ€™s acclaimed group of musicians including Dennis Crouch (bass), Jay Bellerose (drums), David Mansfield (fiddle & mandolin), Marc Ribot (guitar), Keefus Ciancia (keyboards), Greg Leisz (pedal steel), Darrell Leonard (trumpet), Ira Nepus (trombone) and George Bohanon (horns). Standout tracks include the opener â€œNothin’ But the Whole Wide World,â€ which sets the tone of the album, the pensive ballad â€œDown on Our Own Shieldâ€ and “Everybody’s Hurtingâ€™,â€which showcases Jakob and Nekoâ€™s moving harmonies.
