The untitled album is due out in June

Richard Thompson has revealed details of his new studio album.

Speaking to Addicted To Noise, Thompson confrms that the album has been produced by Jeff Tweedy.

“We’ve worked with Jeff live,” Thompson said. “In fact, last year in the States we toured with Wilco. They’re very conscious of the roots of music so we think in a similar way about how to make records. So I think it was a fairly easy single-minded process.”

The new album will contain original songs, although Thompson admits that as yet he does not have a title for the record. “We’re still going backwards and forwards with it,” he said. “We’re very close. Don’t quite have it yet.”

“I’m very happy with it,” he added.
