Iris DeMent has a new album arriving soon. The singer-songwriter announced that her next LP is titled Workin’ on a World, and it’s out February 24. The album includes “Goin’ Down to Sing in Texas,” a lengthy song about gun control that DeMent first released in 2020. Find it and the title track to Workin’ on a World below.

According to a press release, Workin’ on a World has been in development for six years. DeMent worked with co-producers Richard Bennett, Jim Rooney, and Pieta Brown, completing the project in Nashville last year. It’s her seventh album and her first in nearly a decade, following 2015’s The Trackless Woods.

To celebrate the release of her new album, DeMent will be embarking on a short tour in the winter and spring. The trek spans seven dates in total, beginning with a concert in Notre Dame, Indiana, on February 17 and concluding in Stoughton, Wisconsin, on May 13. Find the full list of tour dates below.
