Rhiannon Giddens is set to release Freedom Highway

American roots music sensation Rhiannon Giddens is set to release Freedom Highway in February 2017. This will be her follow-up to her critically acclaimed solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn.

Freedom Highway includes nine original songs written or co-written by Giddens; a traditional tune; and two civil rights-era songs, “Birmingham Sunday” and the Staple Singers’ “Freedom Highway.”

Giddens co-produced the album along with multi-instrumentalist Dirk Powell in his Louisiana studio, with the majority of the recording made in wooden rooms built prior to the Civil War, over an eight-day period.
