Dickinson, a co-founding member of southern rock act North Mississippi Allstars, produced the album himself at his family’s Zebra Ranch Studios in Independence, Mississippi. Dickinson has rounded up an all-star, all-female cast for the new project, including Amy Helm, Lillie Mae, Amy LaVere, Sharde Thomas, Birds of Chicago, and the Como Mamas.Originally written by T Bone Burnett and Bob Neuwirth for the 2003 film Cold Mountain, Luther Dickinson recorded his cover of “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen” with Amy Helm and Lillie Mae. Following a breezy opening guitar segment from Dickinson, Helm dives head-first into the song’s verse before harmonizing with Mae on the chorus.Dickinson recently shared his thoughts on the new project with Relix. He explains,Each singer brought a handful of songs to the table. Sometimes it was an old tune they wanted to reinterpret or something new they’d written that felt right for the cast of characters at hand, but no matter the track, all of our colors ended up mixing together on a communal palette.Watch Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon’s new video for “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen” below:Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon – “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen”[Video: New West Records]Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon will perform at various City Winery locations throughout the month of March.

“He has a good technique and because we have a game based on very quick combinations I believe he can be a part of that. Overall I am convinced in the coming games he will show it. “A definite decision has not been made, but if there is an opportunity then there is a good chance I will do it.” Wenger feels collectively the team deserves credit for continuing to maintain an attacking threat, with 99 goals from 50 games in all competitions this season, despite the departure of talisman forward Robin van Persie for United last summer. “You want to know that you can score at least two goals in every game because it gives you a good belief,” the Gunners boss said. “Overall, and considering we lost a world-class striker, I believe we have compensated quite well.” Walcott, meanwhile, feels he has already laid a claim to be deployed down the middle. The 24-year-old is Arsenal’s leading scorer with 19 in all competitions – which included hat-tricks against Reading and Newcastle. The pacy England international hopes to make the most of any more opportunities which come his way. “I played a few games there and I would like a few more towards the end of the season,” Walcott said. “I scored a lot of my goals this season when playing up front, so I have shown what I can do and it is up to the manager to do what he sees is best.” Lukas Podolski has all the attributes needed to successfully lead the Arsenal attack, according to manager Arsene Wenger. The Gunners must again do without 17-goal hitman Olivier Giroud when they travel to relegated QPR for Saturday’s late afternoon kick-off as the Frenchman continues his three-match ban. Wenger has acknowledged he has a tough tactical call to make about whether to go for Podolski or Walcott in his place, but insisted the German has what it takes to play in a central role. “It believe so, he has the qualities because he is a good finisher,” Wenger said of Podolski, who is reported to be set for surgery on his troublesome ankle at the end of the season.
