Shawn is pleased to announce his new 17 song double CD. The double CD features 20 tracks of previously unreleased songs, written over the last 15 years. Perspective was entirely crowd-funded by the donations of Shawn Phillips fans. "This album would not have been possible without the generosity of my fans. Their ongoing support over the decades has buoyed my career and driven me to continue to create." he said.

Most of the tracks were recorded in Phillips� home studio in Port Elizabeth, South Africa between February and April this year. �I worked with exceptionally talented South African musicians - Lloyd Martin on drums, Joe van der Linden on bass, Mauritz Lotz on guitar and Wesley Keet, John Edwards and Ruby Gill on keys. Ruby is a recording artist at the beginning of her career - she's 17 and has the most extraordinary talent as a composer and lyricist. Phillips co-produced the album with Bryan McLagan, who also engineered, mixed and mastered Perspective.
