In the Time of Gods, the ninth studio album from beloved singer-songwriter and long-time Razor & Tie mainstay Dar Williams is due for release on April 17, 2012.
Produced by Kevin Killen (who has worked with U2, Elvis Costello, and Peter Gabriel), and featuring a remarkable set of musicians including Larry Campbell, Charley Drayton, Gerry Leonard, and Rob Hyman, the new album is among the most evocative of Williams' career.
As Dar explains it, "I'm interested in power right now," she says. "I'm in my 40s, and I m shocked that the cafe conversations I had in my 20s 'Somebody has to do something!' are now my responsibility. I see people who are actually doing things that you always dreamed somebody would do, and I can help make that a reality. So the stakes are higher, in a good way, but you also see the shadow, the reckless behavior, where a person can lose it all in a weekend."
