Produced by Williams and Tom Overby, This Sweet Old World – recorded to mark the 25th anniversary of the original album’s release by Chameleon/Elektra – features all-new renditions of the 1992 set’s 12 songs, some of which have been dramatically rearranged and rewritten.

On This Sweet Old World, Williams is supported by her touring and studio band: guitarist Stuart Mathis, bassist David Sutton, and drummer Butch Norton. Longtime collaborator Greg Leisz – who participated in early sessions for the 1992 album, and co-produced Williams’ most recent studio releases, The Ghosts of Highway 20 (2016) and Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone (2014) – contributes spectacular guitar work.

The release is augmented by four newly recorded bonus tracks that harken back to Williams’ early performing career.
