Rick Rubin has to be one of the most diverse and hardest working producers in history. Well, at least in my book. In case you didn't know, The Avett Brothers are gearing up for the release of their new album I and Love and You. The album drops September 29 and was recorded and produced in Malibu, California by Mr. Rubin.

Although the 13 track album won't be released for a while, mark September 22 down in your calendars. NPR Music will be hosting an I and Love and You first listen on their WEBSITE.
