NickelCreekIt was announced the release – scheduled for April 1 across the world – the new album by Nickel Creek, the trio of Chris Thile (mandolin), Sara Watkins (violin) and Sean Watkins (guitar). The album is titled A dotted line, is produced by Eric Valentine and released by Nonesuch Records. Valentine – who had already produced Why Should the fire die?, The band’s latest album, released in 2006 – is a well-established producer, who among his works can be counted Songs for the deaf Queens of the stone age and the Slash’s latest album. Nonesuch Records (we talked about it several times) is one of the most active American label not only in the new-folk scene. Among its artists there are Veloso, Brad Mehldau, Compay Segundo and Kronos Quartet, but also Taumani Diabaté and Bill Frisell, through the new stars of the indie and international pop-rock scene like Devendra Banhart, The Magnetic Field, Iron and Wine, Dan Auerbach, or established stars as Dr. John, Tony Allen, Bjork and The Blind Boys of Alabama. The Nickel Creek is a band whose career began in the late nineties, has been characterized by a certain intermittently. Despite this, he has had good success. The self-titled debut album in 2000 (organized with the help of Allison Krauss) has received two Grammy Award nominations for best bluegrass album and best instrumental piece for “Ode to a butterfly”. With their second album, This side, in 2002, the band moves away from bluegrass to embrace other influences, especially Folk-rock. This perspective is accomplished entirely with Why should the fire die, the last album followed in 2007 Farewell (For Now) Tour, a long tour announced from the title as the last of the trio.

Now, several years later, here they are again with this album is that, judging by the reports circulating for a while on the network, it will not hurt anything. Will feature six new songs written together by three musicians, a song written by Thile and one by Sean Watkins, as well as two cover songs: Where Is Love Now by Sam Phillips and Mother Mother ‘s Hayloft.
