Announcing: the brand new album from the legendary Swamp Dogg -
Sorry You Couldn't Make It.
This is Swamp Dogg's so-called "country album", recorded in Nashville with the likes of John Prine, Justin Vernon, Jenny Lewis, and others.
Sorry You Couldn't Make It is the album Swamp has been trying to make his entire career. Following 2018’s highly acclaimed comeback album, Love, Loss, And Auto-Tune, Sorry You Couldn’t Make It allows Swamp to finally dive into the sound he grew up playing. While the 77 year-old's most enduring persona is of a psychedelic soul superhero—a musical vigilante upholding truths both personal and political since 1970’s immortal album Total Destruction To Your Mind—he will tell anybody who will listen that he’s considered himself country this entire time. “If you notice I use a lot of horns,” Swamp says. “But actually, if you listen to my records before I start stacking shit on it, I’m country. I sound country.”
These are narratives about love, of missing the one you love, of compassion, family and friends, and even the kind of love that transcends death. Sorry You Couldn’t Make It sees Swamp come full circle, and closes what has felt to him like unfinished business.
We are honored JNR and our partners at Pioneer Works are able to give this legend a platform to realize this vision... It's a truly magical album.
