The famed guitarist has announced that he’ll be working on his first-ever Americana project with help from New Jersey newgrass band Railroad Earth.
The pair teams on a 13-track album titled Ashes and Dust that consists of “folky, singer-songwriter, even Celtic” songs Haynes has written over the past 30 years, Consequence of Sound reports.
As it’s a new direction for Haynes, he’ll be using new equipment for the occasion.
‘“I played a lot more slide guitar than I’ve played in a long time and a lot of acoustic guitar, things that were more directed to weaving themselves into the fabric of this music,” he said in a press release.
Ashes and Dust hits stores July 24 and is available for pre-order at Haynes’ website.
