Night owls: Albert Hammond Jr. is the musical guest on tonight's Late Late Show with James Corden. When Albert and his band last visited our studio, they performed a great two-song mashup; check out video of it here:
'I fell in love with the idea of writing songs and playing,' Albert Hammond Jr. says, reflecting on the origins of his career. It helped that Hammond's father is a songwriter himself, and that both of his parents are very supportive. Hammond Jr. spoke more about his career arc when he stopped in to The Current for an in-studio session hosted by Jill Riley.

Cloud Cult have long imagined filmic versions of their albums, but on 'The Seeker' — their tenth studio release — that dream has become reality. Listen to Craig Minowa's description of the project.
Craig Minowa has long imagined film versions of Cloud Cult's albums. Good things come to those who wait: For 'The Seeker' -- the band's tenth full-length release -- a film starring Josh Radnor and Alex McKenna accompanies it. With the album set to release on Feb. 12, Minowa spoke about the marriage of music and visuals on 'The Seeker.'

Among The Current's listeners who submitted a rating for Lucinda Williams' "The Ghosts of Highway 20," 88 percent gave it 5 out of 5 stars. Read Bill DeVille's review of "The Ghosts of Highway 20," our Album of the Week: http://www.thecurrent.org/feature/2016/02/08/album-of-the-week-lucinda-williams-the-ghosts-of-highway-20
Lucinda Williams' second double album in less than two years is inspired by a 190-mile stretch of road near the place in Louisiana where she grew up. If GQ magazine recently called Jason Isbell the King of Americana, perhaps Lucinda Williams is its reigning queen.
