The Watson Twins have already been having a busy year, and it's about to get busier. After releasing an acoustic live session for a song off their last album (2013's Pioneer Lane), joining their Rabbit Fur Coat collaborator Jenny Lewis on stage at Newport Folk Fest, and announcing a tour with Pokey LaFarge, the twins are now set to release a followup album to Pioneer Lane. It's called DUO and it comes out October 12.

They made the album with longtime collaborator Russ Pollard (of Sebadoh, The Folk Implosion, Everest, and others), and it also features collaborations from My Morning Jacket members Carl Broemel and Bo Koster, Vanessa Carlton, Mickey Raphael, and The Catcus Blossoms. We're premiering the first single, "Hustle and Shake," which is a lovely sounding dose of twangy folk that sees the sisters' voices sounding as wonderful together as ever. They tell us that the song "was directly inspired by life on the road, in the studio and on stage... creating the music we love. For us, this song is all about the highs and lows of that journey." Listen below.

As mentioned, The Watson Twins' tour with Pokey LaFarge concludes with a NYC show on October 28 at City Winery (tickets). All dates are listed below.
