Jason Isbell is keeping fans on their toes with yet another big announcement: Following the revelation that he's finishing up his next studio album, Isbell has revealed that he'll also be releasing a six-song live EP this spring ... and hitting the road on a summer tour.

Isbell's live EP, Live From Welcome to 1979, will feature one revival of an Isbell classic -- "Never Gonna Change," from his second album with the Drive-By Truckers, 2004's The Dirty South -- along with five soul, rock and country covers. Included in the track listing are two Rolling Stones covers, Candi Staton's "Heart on a Ring," Bruce Springsteen's "Atlantic City" and John Prine's "Storm Windows." The EP will be offered solely on vinyl and available as a Record Store Day 2017 exclusive on April 22.

2017's Country, Americana, Alt-Country, Bluegrass and Folk Tours

With all of this new music coming out, it only makes sense that Isbell and his bandmates would hit the road. So, on June 17, Isbell and the 400 Unit will kick off a summer tour, during which they'll play almost 40 shows across America and Europe through mid-November. A full tour dates list is available below; visit Isbell's official website for more details.
