The British folk singer-songwriter/guitar god Richard Thompson cut 16 tracks for his latest record, Electric – out February 5th on New West Records – in a speedy, spontaneous four days at producer Buddy Miller's home studio in Nashville.
"I thought it would be good to have [the album] sound fairly garage, if you like – slightly trashed out. I think it is, in a good way," Thompson tells Rolling Stone. "[It's] the opposite of smooth."
