Highway Butterfly: The Songs of Neal Casal is a tribute to the life and music of the gifted singer, songwriter, musician, and friend to many. Featuring 41 of Neal’s songs on 5 LPs or 3 CDs, the collection brings together a galaxy of rock and roots music luminaries to reimagine the body of work he left behind, while celebrating his enduring impact as an artist.

Within the limited edition vinyl and CD box sets are sleeves with rare and previously unpublished photos of Neal, a booklet presenting song lyrics, Neal’s own iconic photography and an essay by early career champion Jim Cardillo. Additional collectibles include a poster and baseball card with photos of Neal by photographer Jay Blakesberg and stickers designed by poster artists Alan Forbes and Marq Spusta. Highway Butterfly was co-produced by Widespread Panic's Dave Schools and 7-time Grammy-Winner Jim Scott.

On the album's first single, "Superhighway," bassist Oteil Burbridge takes lead vocals and low end duty:
