New Levon Helm in June

CMT posts (and Music Fog twittered) that the follow up to Levon Helm’s 2007’s Grammy-winning album, Dirt Farmer, will be Electric Dirt. The album will be released on June 30 on Dirt Farmer Music/Vanguard Records.

Multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell produced the sessions that were recorded at Helm’s studio. Selections include covers of the Grateful Dead’s “Tennessee Jed,” Happy Traum’s “Golden Bird” and Randy Newman’s “Kingfish,” as well as “Growing Trade,” a new song written by Helm and Campbell, about a farmer’s struggle to preserve his livelihood.
