Topic Records - New Linda Thompson Album

Won't Be Long Now

Topic Records is very proud to announce that the long-awaited new album from Linda Thompson will be released next week.

Won’t Be Long Now – Linda's first album in six years -  was recorded in the UK and America with a rich array of contributing musicians. While it’s undoubtedly a family affair, featuring a duet with former husband Richard Thompson, regular contributions from their children Teddy and Kami, and grandson Zak Hobbs,
Won’t Be Long Now also reflects Linda’s folk beginnings. This new album includes appearances by many alumni of the British folk scene, including John Kirkpatrick, Dave Swarbrick, Martin and Eliza Carthy, as well as American musicians such as David Mansfield, Amy Helm, Sam Amidon, Jenni Muldaur and Tony Trischka, among others.

“It’s apparent how undimmed Thompson’s talent is, especially in the sheer confident power of her vocal performance. Long may she continue.” Record Collector
