Billy Joe Shaver has announced the release of his first new album in over six years.

‘Long in the Tooth’ is set for release on Aug. 5 and features guest appearances from Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, Tony Joe White and Shawn Camp.

“This is the best album I’ve ever done,” Shaver says. “It’s just dangerously good. I expect it to change things and turn things around the way ‘Honky Tonk Heroes’ did.”

The sentiment echoes something Shaver has been saying since last July.

“I think it’s going to be the best album I ever did,” the Texas troubadour said last summer, but he was wary of giving too many details at the time. “It’s so descriptive that I hesitate to tell you the titles of any songs because that’ll be the end of it.”

‘Long in the Tooth’ was produced by Ray Kennedy and Gary Nicholson. The album is available for pre-order on Amazon.
