“Terraplane” takes its title from the 1930s Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit model, which also inspired the Robert Johnson song, “Terraplane Blues.” It is Steve Earle’s 16th studio album since the release of his highly influential 1986 debut Guitar Town. As its title suggests, the album is very much a blues record, some of which was written while Earle toured Europe alone for five weeks with just a guitar, a mandolin and a backpack. Available in Regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe adds a DVD that features a behind-the-scenes mini documentary, an interview, three live acoustic performances and more.
