Freedom Highway Digital FLAC Album
Freedom Highway, Rhiannon Giddens' follow-up to her highly praised solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, includes nine original songs she wrote or co-wrote, a traditional tune, and two civil rights–era songs. She co-produced the album with multi-instrumentalist Dirk Powell in his Louisiana studio, with the bulk of recording done in wooden rooms built prior to the Civil War, over an intense eight-day period. ""Giddens emerges as a peerless and powerful voice in roots music,"" Pitchfork exclaims. It's a ""rich collection,"" says NPR; ""hope comes back to life in Giddens' music.""
