On Steve Martin’s latest LP, he reconnects with his backing band the Steep Canyon Rangers, who previously contributed to 2011’s Rare Bird Alert, 2013’s Love Has Come For You and 2014’s Live. Martin’s last album, So Familiar, was a collaboration with Edie Brickell that came out in 2015. Martin and Brickell won a Best American Roots Song Grammy in 2014. It’s one of several accolades Martin has picked up for his music, which also earned him Grammys in 2009 (Best Bluegrass Album) and 2001 (Best Country Instrumental Performance). Peter Asher, the Grammy-winning producer who’s worked with James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt and Neil Diamond, produced The Long-Awaited Album.
