A collection of 11 songs—eight written or co-written by Colvin—All Fall Down is her eighth studio album and the first to be produced by her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller (Robert Plant, Solomon Burke). Recorded in Nashville, All Fall Down features performances by Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Jakob Dylan, Bill Frisell, Viktor Krauss, Brian Blade, Stuart Duncan, and Julie Miller, among others. In her first-ever memoir, Diamond in the Rough (William Morrow / HarperCollins), Colvin shares her candid, colorful coming-of-age story, including more than three decades of touring, writing, and living to make music. The wit, lyricism, and empathy found in the book are traits that have long characterized Colvin’s songwriting and her live performances.
Both All Fall Down and Diamond in the Rough are available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store. All CD and discounted book-plus-CD bundle pre-orders include an instant download of the album's title track, "All Fall Down." To pick up a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store now.
