    The Prodigal Son

    The first solo album for six years by the enduringly influential Ry Cooder, The Prodigal Son, will be released by Fantasy Records.

    Recorded in Hollywood, it was produced by Ry with his son and chief collaborator, Joachim Cooder. It's described as a musical depiction of modern America through the songs of the Pilgrim Travellers, the Stanley Brothers, Blind Willie Johnson and Cooder himself (above photo credit: Joachim Cooder).

    The 11-track set features three Cooder originals, which sit along his personal selection of favorite spirituals of the last century which have great resonance in the modern world. "I do connect the political/economic dimensions with the inner life of people since people are at risk and oppressed on all sides in our world today," says the artist.

    "There's some kind of reverence mood that takes hold when you play and sing these songs. 'Reverence' is a word I heard my granddaughter's nursery school teacher use, a Kashmiri woman. She said, 'We don't want to teach religion, but instill reverence.' I thought that was a good word for the feeling of this music."

    The new set further extends the deep contribution made by Cooder to modern music and culture that dates back nearly 50 years. As a singer, writer, producer, guitarist and muse, he remains a unique voice and inspiration, with a vast catalog of solo albums, collaborations, guest appearances and soundtracks. His last studio set was 2012's Election Special.
