Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway shared a new single, “Dooley’s Farm,” featuring Billy Strings. The song is set to appear on Tuttle’s upcoming album, Crooked Tree, due out on April 1 via Nonesuch Records.

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Molly Tuttle heralded the Jerry Douglas co-produced Crooked Tree in January with a performance video for the title track and followed with “She’ll Change.” The LP is Tuttle’s Nonesuch debut as well her first with her bluegrass collective Golden Highway who are joined by a host of special guests on Crooked Tree including Sierra Hull, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Dan Tyminski, Gillian Welch and the aforementioned Billy Strings.

Molly detailed her adaptation of the traditional with Billy and co-writer OCMS’s Ketch Secor:

When I was a kid I loved “Dooley,” a song about a moonshiner whose daughters helped him run the family still. In “Dooley’s Farm” I decided to recast Dooley as a modern-day outlaw, writing from the perspective of his granddaughter. I wrote this song with Ketch Secor and brought Billy Strings in to lend his amazing voice and playing. I had fun updating this classic bluegrass character while taking some inspiration from my real grandfather who was a farmer (but not that kind of farmer).
