Bill Frisell has announced the followup to his acclaimed 2020 trio album Valentine.

Blue Note Records describes Four as “a stunning 13-track meditation on loss, renewal and friendships.” It’s the guitarist and composer’s third album for Blue Note since signing with the label in 2019.

Four features a few new interpretations of previously recorded Frisell originals as well as nine brand-new tunes.

Produced by Lee Townsend, the session brings together a new lineup of musicians: pianist Gerald Clayton, drummer Johnathan Blake, and longtime collaborator Greg Tardy on saxophone and clarinets.

Listen to Waltz for Hal Willner, a heartfelt tribute to Frisell’s dear friend:
