The album is a neat flip on Tomorrow Is My Turn, the Carolina Chocolate Drops singer's 2015 solo debut. That album features only one original composition, showcasing Giddens not just as an interpretive singer of tremendous vision and ingenuity, but also as a folklorist who's able to dip into the well of American song and from it draw moral clarity for the present day. Conversely, Giddens has writing credits on nine of Freedom Highway's dozen songs, but that's not to say she's tucked her folklorist's tools in a drawer somewhere. Like Bob Dylan, Giddens has completely absorbed the language of the American folk songfrom country-blues to jug-band anthems, from Pentecostal music to hip-hopand even the original numbers here pilfer words, images, and ideas from traditional music. Every song on the album is abundant in these acts of love and theft.
