Rhiannon Giddens has made a habit of approaching her music career differently. In fact, she’s one of the rare artists whose albums have consisted mostly of covers, give or take an original song—until now. On August 18, Giddens released You’re the One, her first album of entirely original material. “I like doing different things,” Giddens tells American Songwriter in a phone interview from her hotel room in Rome, Italy, about her approach to You’re the One.
