After scoring a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with 2011's "Mission Bell," folk rock singer-songwriter Amos Lee has set the date for a follow-up, "Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song," to be released on Oct. 1.
For the new record, Lee teamed up with producer Jay Joyce, who recorded the 12-song collection in a studio that was once a home in East Nashville. In the past Joyce has recorded with artists such as Cage the Elephant, Eric Church, and Emmylou Harris.
The studio's Nashville location made the record open to a number of notable cameos. Multi-Grammy winner Allison Krauss will join Lee on the track "Chill in Air," and Patty Griffin, Jeff Coffin of Dave Matthews Band, among others, will also be found on the set.
