Lee Ranaldo, The Low Anthem and Matt Costa Contribute to Jack Kerouac-Inspired Album

Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, The Low Anthem and Matt Costa have all contributed music to a new compilation called Esperanza: Songs From Jack Kerouac’s Tristessa, which is set for release on September 17 via ReImagine Music. The album’s songs are all either based on or influenced by the prose of one of Kerouac’s darkest novels Tristessa, the tale of a morphine-addicted prostitute that Kerouac falls in love with.

The album is produced by Jim Sampas, who initiated and executive produced Big Sur, a feature film based on Kerouac’s novel of the same name. Other artists on the record include William Fitzsimmons, Gregory Alan Isakov, Peter Bradley Adams, Alela Diane, Wintersleep, Marissa Nadler, Joshua James, Hey Rosetta!, Willy Mason and Tony Dekker (of The Great Lake Swimmers).
