Loudon Wainwright III on Diverse.

Yep, another legend bagged by the label. We’re releasing Loudon Wainwright III’s new album on vinyl. Our friends at Proper have put the CD out and asked us if we fancied it. We said yes pretty quickly. Firstly, it’s a great album and secondly, it has Dame Edna Everage on it!!

Loudon Wainwright III’s Older Than My Old Man Now is his take on a memoir, told in 15 songs. Here he attempts to sum up his tangled family history, three marriages and his relationships to each of his children — all of four of them make appearances on the album, as do two of their three mothers, Suzzy Roche and Ritamarie Kelly. Also included are recitations from the writings of his late father, a Life magazine columnist, and the only song ever co-written with former wife, the late Kate McGarrigle. Other guests include Chris Smither, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, John Scofield, as well as the aforementioned Dame Edna Everage.

Hopefully we’ll see it released sometime toward the end of June.
