With a career spanning more than 30 years, English musician Billy Bragg blends folk, rock and punk with messages about politics and love. His new album Tooth & Nail is his first release in five years. A quieter and more introspective effort, it draws heavily from Mermaid Avenue, his collaboration with Wilco that brought previously unheard Woody Guthrie songs to life.
Here, Bragg plays songs from Tooth & Nail and talks with host David Dye about the inspiration behind the album.
