Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers Band is only two weeks away from releasing his upcoming solo album, Ashes & Dust, and the guitarist stopped bySiriusXM Jam On to perform tracks and discuss the upcoming release, including how he wrote the LP’s lead single, Spots of Time, with The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh.

“He said he had this music that he wanted me to write some lyrics and a melody for,” Haynes said. “He explained to me that the phrase Spots of Times came from a Wordsworth poem called The Prelude, and he said that Wordsworth had actually used the phrase “spots of time” in several of his pieces, and he explained to me what it meant to him. Poetry is all about interpretation, and so I Googled it, read the poem, and kind of researched it and figured out what it meant to me and wrote the lyrics and melody for Spots of Time.”

You can hear the rest of the interview as well the exclusive performance by Warren Haynes on SiriusXM Jam On on Monday, July 20 at 12 pm ET
