Out today: Teddy Thompson & Kelly Jones album 'Little Windows'

Teddy Thompson and Kelly Jones released their new album Little Windows today via Cooking Vinyl. The duo will also kick off their tour in support of the album this Sunday in Philadelphia (see dates below).

NPR featured the album track "As You Were" Today as a "Songs We Love"

Teddy and Kelly first sang together on a George Jones track at LA's Club Largo in 2011. Soon after, they wrote
songs that would become Little Windows on opposite US coasts with partner Bill DeMain. They were inspired by the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and Sam Cooke. 

Keeping with a classic sound, the album was recorded live to tape by producer Mike Viola (Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis) with a band featuring Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions), Davey Farragher (Cracker, Elvis Costello), Daniel Clarke (Ryan Adams) and it was executive produced by Teddy's mother, Linda Thompson.

Teddy's last solo album Bella was released in 2011; while he produced and sang on 2014's acclaimed Thompson Family album that featured his now-divorced parents Richard & Linda Thompson among many other family members.

A longtime member of Rufus Wainwright's band, Teddy has also collaborated with Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, among others. Kelly Jones' debut album SheBANG was released in 2008 to critical acclaim, while Alta Loma followed.
