Warner Bros. Records will release remastered versions of six classic Steve Earle albums next month, beginning with a trio of reissues on September 22:  The Mountain, Earle’s GRAMMY-nominated 1999 collaboration with the legendary Del McCoury Band, the GRAMMY®-nominated Transcendental Blues, originally released in 2000, and Earle’s 2002 compilation album, Sidetracks. All six albums – originally released via E-Squared/Artemis Records – will be available in vinyl and CD formats.
Following on September 29 will be 2002’s Jerusalem, which contains the controversial “John Walker’s Blues,” Earle’s 2003 live set, Just An American Boy, and his GRAMMY-winning 2004 album, The Revolution Starts Now. This will mark the first time that Sidetracks and Just An American Boy have been released on vinyl. In addition, a remastered version of 1997’s El Corazón will be released for the first time on vinyl on November 24 (Black Friday).
Today, the official video for “Goodbye Michelangelo” was released. View the clip here. Hailed as “a touching tribute to the late Guy Clark” by Pitchfork, the track is from Earle’s new album, So You Wannabe an Outlaw.
Steve Earle and The Dukes are currently touring in support of So You Wannabe an Outlaw. After tonight’s show at the Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA, they head to Los Angeles for two sold-out nights at the historic Troubadour (August 11 and 12).

Three-time GRAMMY Award recipient and 14-time GRAMMY nominee Steve Earle is a cornerstone artist of Americana music. One of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, he has released 16 albums and his songs have been recorded by such music legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill, and Joan Baez. He has created such country classics as “When You Fall in Love,” “Guitar Town,” “Goodbye’s All We’ve Got Left,” “A Far Cry From You,” and “Nowhere Road.” Always musically adventurous, Earle has crafted folk, blues, rock, country, rockabilly, and bluegrass recordings. His diverse collaborators have included such notables as The Pogues, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith, The Fairfield Four, The Indigo Girls, Chris Hillman, Sheryl Crow, and Shawn Colvin. He is a longtime social and political activist whose causes have included the abolition of the death penalty and the removal of the Confederate symbol from the Mississippi State flag.
A true Renaissance man, Earle has also become a novelist, a film, TV, and stage actor, playwright, author, record producer, and radio host over the course of his 30+ year career. Earlier this year, he appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara, for which Earle also wrote the score that The New York Times called “exquisitely subliminal.” He is also in the process of writing his memoirs for future publication. Tune in to Steve Earle’s weekly radio show Hardcore Troubadour on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country Channel.
