Son Volt Set to Return With New March Album

Son Volt, the alt-country band led by songwriter and frontman Jay Farrar, are scheduled to return in 2013 with a new as-yet-untitled studio album due March 5 titled Honky Tonk on Rounder. The new project is the first for the band since 2009's American Central Dust. Farrar recently teamed up with My Morning Jacket's Yim Yames, Will Johnson and Anders Parker for the 2012 Woody Guthrie tribute album New Multitudes, a collection of new songs that utilized Guthrie's previously unrecorded lyrics.
