Well, this is cool! Howl & Echoes has determined my soundtrack for today:

A new album paying tribute to Blind Willie Johnson is about to be released, including covers of his blues tracks by Tom Waits, Sinead O’Connor, Lucinda Williams and more.

That “more” happens to include Cowboy Junkies, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Maria McKee, Rickie Lee Jones and Luther Dickinson. My kind of party.
