Jason Isbell\’s songs are filled with ghosts. They\’re haunted by spirits both welcome and unwelcome, by the personal and historical legacies that make us who we are. Nowhere is this more evident than on his 2013 breakthrough album Southeastern. Isbell offers confessions, reflections, and promises that confront and make communion with those who have come before and remain with us still. Its twelve tracks represent an extended meditation on the concept articulated by another celebrated southern storyteller, author William Faulkner: \”The past is never dead. It isn\’t even past\”
We\’re thrilled to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Southeastern with a newly remastered version of Isbell\’s now classic album.
The deluxe edition includes:
– Remastered Southeastern on LP
– Original demos
– Live performance of Southeastern from December 2022 at the Bijou Theatre in Knoxville, TN.
– Lyric booklet containing scans of Jason\’s original handwritten lyrics and liner notes from Charles Hughes
