Brace for impact, because Sturgill Simpson plans to return with his "heaviest" and "most psychedelic" work to date. 

Simpson took to San Diego Comic-Con 2019 to unveil plans for his latest album, "Sound & Fury," which comes accompanied with a Japanese anime set to be distributed on Netflix. 

Simpson appeared at the annual cultural convention with "Sound & Fury" anime writer and director Jumpei Mizusaki and character designer Takashi Okazaki to debut a teaser trailer for the project.

"Sound & Fury" plans to drop this fall via Elektra Records; an exact release date is yet to be announced. 

In a news release, the Grammy Award-winning Simpson teased his latest musical direction. 

“We went in without any preconceived notions and came out with a really sleazy, steamy rock 'n' roll record.  It’s definitely my most psychedelic.  And also my heaviest.  I had this idea that it’d be really cool to animate some of these songs, and we ended up with a futuristic, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, samurai film.”

Simpson produced "Sound & Fury," which follows 2016's banner release, "A Sailor's Guide to Earth." Simpson latest release came earlier this summer, a one-off song to accompany Jim Jarmusch's faux-zombie flick, "The Dead Don't Die."
