Gravel & Dust' is the title of the new Americana album, recorded with T-Bone Burnett, by Ilse DeLange. With this album Ilse takes a new step forward. It is an awakening of an old and familiar fire. A return to her source of roots, folk and Americana.
Gravel & Dust' is a new step forward, a flickering of an old fire, and at the same time a return to its source. To complete the circle of World Of Hurt by working together with the man who plays a leading role in the music that inspired that classic debut 21 years ago.
The new album is more than a collection of ten songs, it's a real álbum, it's not for nothing that it also appears on vinyl. A unity of atmosphere, an introvert, warm declaration of love to a beneficent source of music love. It is as if T-Bone Burnett has put Ilse DeLange in a room. On a stool with a guitar, and one spotlight on her, with musicians around her in the twilight, who are so good that they have no need to keep proving it.
