Actress and singer/songwriter Katey Sagal aka Peg Bundy of Married With Children, among other key roles, has it covered. She will release her new album, Covered, on Entertainment One Music on November 12, 2013.
Covered is Sagal's first studio album in nine years, and features a duet with Jackson Browne on Steve Earle's heartbreaking song "Goodbye." The album also features covers of songs by noted songwriters Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Ron Sexsmith, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams and more.
It's aptly titled.
If you've not kept up with her acting career, Sagal now stars on Sons of Anarchy.
Also, Sagal has had a long musical career in addition to that acting career. She sang backup vocals for Bette Midler, Bob Dylan, Tanya Tucker, Gene Simmons and others. She also released two solo albums.
This is not her first time at the music rodeo by any means.
About the album, Sagal says, "Covered is my third solo record. My two previous records were mostly original compositions. This one is not. I was tired of waiting for myself to write, and anxious to make another album."
She exercised her creative muscles with other people's songs. Nothing wrong with that.
On Covered, Sagal is joined by The Forest Rangers, the "house band" of Sons of Anarchy, led by the show's music supervisor and musical director Bob Thiele. Thiele, along with noted songwriter Tonio K., also composed the one original composition on Covered, titled "Follow the River."
Sagal adds, "Covered is the combined effort of Bob and myself, discovering and interpreting an eclectic mix of music that I connected with. Some of the songs reflect on my younger life, and some from music I listen to now...material from Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Steve Earle, etc. All have personal meaning and reason for me to want to sing them."
