Part-time Brevardian Steve Martin is releasing a new folk/Americana record with singer Edie Brickell. Love Has Come for You will be released in April on Rounder Records.

The first track is called “When you get to Asheville.” According to Glide Magazine, the two will tour.

From a New Yorker review this month:

The song I listen to most often is the first one on the record, “When You Get to Asheville.” It begins with a rising, elegiac banjo line, like something you might play to remember someone, then Brickell sings, “When you get to Asheville, send me an e-mail, tell me how you’re doing, how it’s treating you.” Someone has left, and there is a vibrancy in her voice that makes it sound as if she is managing to preserve herself, though part of her feels the loss.

Some lyrics:

When you get to Asheville

send me an email

tell me how you’re doing

how it’s treating you

did you find a new job?

did you find a new love?

is it everything that 

you were dreaming of?

ooh, if it don’t work out

ooh, if it don’t work out

ooh, you can turn around

and come on back to me

you can come on home to me

UPDATED: Here are tour dates with Brickell and Martin. Looks like the May stop in Greenville, S.C. is the closest they’ll come to WNC.

    I think we can all be thankful that they did not collaborate with James Franco on the lyrics.
