Those Darlins, Justin Townes Earle and Others on Upcoming John Prine Tribute Album

What better time to honor a musical legend like John Prine than when he’s still very much alive and producing great music? (He has a new live album coming May 25 that we’ll review soon. Click HERE to download a free track.)

Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows will feature a dozen classic Prine compositions re-imagined by a selection of old favorites and young whippersnappers, including My Morning Jacket, Bon Iverโ€™s Justin Vernon, The Avett Brothers, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band, Old Crow Medicine Show, Lambchop, Drive-By Truckers, Deer Tick featuring Liz Isenberg, Justin Townes Earle, and Those Darlins.

Set for release by Oh Boy Records on June 22nd — they’ll begin a pre-sale on April 27th at www.musicfansdirect.com — this album promises to be more of a heartfelt thank-you note to the irreverent and lovable Mr. Prine than a tribute.

This should be interesting, as Country Music Pride favorites Those Darlins recorded their version of “Let’s Talk Dirty in Hawaiian,” which sounds tailor-made for them.
