It's been thirteen long years since Americana trailblazer John Prine released Fair and Square, his last album of original material. That will all change on April 13 when The Tree of Forgiveness hits shelves. In the lead up to the release date, Prine has released a video for the album's second single “Knockin' on Your Screen Door.”
Like the album's first single, “Summer's End,” “Knockin' On Your Screen Door” is a co-write with hit songwriter and band member Pat McLaughlin. Where “Summer's End” was a gentle ballad, “Knockin' On Your Screen Door” is an amiable country-folk ambler in the vein of one of Prine's biggest influences, The Carter Family.
Produced by Dave Cobb at the historic RCA Studio A, The Tree of Forgiveness features songs co-written with McLaughlin, Roger Cook, Dan Auerbach, Keith Sykes and Phil Spector. Vocal and instrumental guests include Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires and Brandi Carlile.
