Roots-rock legend Lucinda Williams has contributed a new, scuzzed up version of her track "Joy" (originally on 1998's Car Wheels on a Gravel Road) to West of Memphis: Voices For Justice, an upcoming compilation inspired by the new documentary about the West Memphis Three. Originally penned as a kiss off to an unfaithful lover, Williams says "Joy" has always been a song "of triumph – a 'kick in the ass, screw you, motherfucker, I ain't takin' this shit no more' – song," but now has an even deeper meaning. "I'm honored to have had my song find its place here," said Williams, "to serve as a voice for Damien, Jason, Jessie and all the others who, in the past, have had no voice. 'Joy' is now for them."
