Lucinda Williams – “Protection” (Stereogum Premiere)

I turned 35 yesterday, which means I am old as shit, and the veteran roots-rock singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams has been making music for longer than I’ve been alive. Williams will drop her 11th studio album Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone later this month, and she’s already shared the early track “Stowaway In Your Heart.” Today, we’ve got her song “Protection,” a tough and authoritative roadhouse jam. Listen below.

Down Where the Spirit Meets The Bone is out 9/30 on Williams’ own Highway 20 label.
