STURGILL SIMPSON announced his new album Sound & Fury Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con, where the country singer also previewed the LP’s Netflix-bound companion anime film. The album is SIMPSON’s first since his 2016 LP A Sailor’s Guide To Earth, which won the Grammy for Best Country Album along with a nomination for Album of the Year. SIMPSON produced Sound & Fury, an album he called his “heaviest” and “most psychedelic” yet. “We went in without any preconceived notions and came out with a really sleazy, steamy rock n roll record,” said added in a statement. For the companion film, the singer teamed with Japanese anime giants like writer/director Jumpei Mizusaki and character designer Takashi Okazaki, who both joined SIMPSON at Comic-Con to unveil the minute-long trailer for the film. The companion movie, due to hit Netflix this fall to coincide with the album’s release, is set entirely to music from the full album, with a different anime segment for each song. “I had this idea that it’d be really cool to animate some of these songs, and we ended up with a futuristic, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, samurai film,” SIMPSON added.
