Songwriting is a craft and no one follows through on that promise more than Jackson Browne. It's something the singer-songwriter never stops perfecting — always writing new songs and rewriting old ones — even in conversation. His first studio album in six years, Downhill From Everywhere, was released in July of this year.

In this episode of World Cafe, Jackson Browne joins us to dig into his new album, talk about the art of songwriting and tell stories from a life-long career in music.
