James Taylor Announces New Studio Album 'Before This World'
Before This World will become Taylor's first record since 2002's October Road and features 10 songs, including nine original compositions plus a version of the folk tune "Wild Mountain Thyme."
The album, recorded at Taylor's Massachusetts studio, features contributions from Yo-Yo Ma and Sting--the former playing cello on "You and I Again" while the former Police frontman provides vocals for the title track.
"My sort of self-expression and the autobiographical aspect of my work is a thru-line that links all my albums together," Taylor said in a press statement. "I think I have grown musically, and I think people can hear it in what I played in '68, and you can hear it in what I'm singing about now. It is ongoing, it's still me, but it's still evolving."
