The new Chris Thile project, How To Grow A Woman From The Ground, won’t be officially released until September 12, but Chris is now accepting pre-orders online. Anyone who orders in advance will also be entitled to two free digital downloads of songs Chris recorded on his computer. The CD won’t be shipped until next month, but the downloads (More Pretty Girls Than One and Stony Creek) will be available immediately.
There is a track listing and a pre-order link online. You can hear two more samples from the CD on Chris’ MySpace page, where he has been previewing tracks from How To Grow A Woman From The Ground for several weeks, a few at a time.
Here are links to some of our earlier posts about this new CD, which marks Thile’s return to recording with a bluegrass ensemble, though the music they cut is as daring, adventurous, and genre-defying as any he has released to date.
