Pioneering artist Lucinda Williams has released new song “Where The Song Will Find Me” from her album Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart, out June 30th, 2023 via Highway 20 Records/Thirty Tigers. The song delves into her determination to continue making music in the face of personal challenges.
In November 2020, William suffered a stroke that partially impaired some of her motor skills on the left side of her body. Through hard work and sheer determination she learned to walk again, but her ability to play the guitar has not yet returned.
Complete with orchestral arrangement by Lawrence Rothman, “Where the Song Will Find Me” offers an inspirational message from Williams that despite any setbacks, she will always continue to make music, “by any means necessary.”
Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart was produced by Williams, Tom Overby and Ray Kennedy, who also engineered. The album includes guest backing vocals by Jeremy Ivey, Jesse Malin, Buddy Miller, Angel Olsen, Margo Price, Patti Scialfa, Bruce Springsteen and Tommy Stinson.
In April, Williams released her memoir Don’t Tell Anybody The Secrets I Told You (Crown, a division of Penguin Random House LLC). Williams will be the subject of an upcoming feature segment on CBS Sunday Morning.
