Jesse Malin and Lucinda Williams first met in the early 2000s at a jazz club in NYCs West Village. In a joint 2017 Rolling Stone interview, the two discussed their shared love of miscreants, misfits, the misunderstood and the mysteries of everyday lives binds them across the Mason-Dixon line.
Sunset Kids first took shape at The Hollywood Bowl, when Jesse accepted Lucindas invitation to see her open for what turned out to be Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers final concert. The bittersweet experience inspired one of the new albums highlights, Shining Down, a rainy day jangle about keeping alive the spirits of the ones weve lost. During that same visit, the idea came about of three-time Grammy-winning Lucinda producing Jesses next record.
It opens with the pre-apocalyptic confession Meet Me At The End Of The World Again, which includes backing vocals by Malin confidante and collaborator Joseph Arthur. Another key guest contribution comes courtesy of Green Days Billie Joe Armstrong, who co-wrote and sang on Strangers & Thieves.
