The 2014 album was called Common Ground and, thus reestablished after many years on hiatus, the musical collaboration for Dave and Phil Alvin continues apace with the upcoming Lost Time album, due Sept. 18 on Yep Roc. We are advised:

“Over ‘Lost Time’s’ twelve tracks, Dave and Phil pay homage to a number of artists and songs that had an early, formative influence, in Dave’s words “the masters of the Blues, the most transcendental form of American music.” Everyone from Lead Belly to James Brown is represented, but the figure who looms largest on the album, and in the brothers’ own musical journey, is Big Joe Turner. The Alvins met Big Joe as teenagers, and he would mentor them for the remainder of his life. They remain his humble students, and cut four Turner songs for ‘Lost Time.’”
