Loretta Lynn to Release First New Album in Over Ten Years
Tue, 10 Nov 2015 13:40:28
Country legend Loretta Lynn will release her first new album of music in over ten years on March 4, 2016. The album, Full Circle, is released through Legacy Recordings and is the beloved singer's first album since 2004's Van Lear Rose, which was produced with Jack White.
The release is produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash, and recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee. We hear it "takes listeners on a journey through Loretta's musical story, from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a child, to new interpretations of her classic hits and country standards, to songs newly-written for the project. Drawing inspiration from personal memories and deep connections to American music, Lynn's 13 new recordings capture the essence of these songs in intimate new performances."
The album also features two notable contributions, one from the inimitable Elvis Costello on "Everything it Takes," and Willie Nelson, who appears with Lynn on "Lay Me Down." (The latter ever-ready road warrior, 82, and Lynn, 83, are enduring collaborators, having last dueted on Nelson's 2013's To All the Girls.)
Lynn is also the featured subject of an upcoming episode of PBS' American Masters — Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl. The special premieres nationwide Friday, March 4, 2016, and is synopsized thus: "The film will explore the country legend's hard-fought road to stardom. From her Appalachian roots to the Oscar-winning biopic of her life, Coal Miner's Daughter, Lynn struggled to balance family and her music career and is still going strong over 50 years later."
