The follow-up to 2016’s Wild is titled Reckless Heart and it’s set to arrive on February 8 via Silvertone/Sony Music.
Taylor says: “I decided for this album I wanted to go further back to my roots. A large part of that was my decision to work with producer Al Sutton.
“Al’s been a good friend of mine since I moved to Detroit in 2008 and I’ve always been a big fan of his work with the Detroit Cobras, Thornetta Davis and most recently Greta Van Fleet.
“Working together was something we’d always discussed and in particular that he’d like to hear me do something more raw and live. Therefore I wrote with that in mind: 15 or so original tracks as well as one song I’d written in Nashville with James House whom I wrote most of Wild with.
“I tried to keep the subject matter as honest as possible. I just wrote about things I’ve been through in the last two years since we recorded Wild, as I always think I perform the best when it’s something I really feel. Then we cut them all live.”
