Mon, 07 May 2012 10:29:28
Shawn Colvin will preview tracks from her highly anticipated eighth studio album,All Fall Down, at New York City's City Winery on June 4, one day prior to the album's release on Nonesuch Records. The show will be broadcast live on New York's WFUV 90.7FM. Fans outside of the New York metro area can enjoy the show here. Love ya technology! If you are not in New York, you still get to partake. Amazeballs!
All Fall Down is Colvin's first album to be produced by her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller (Robert Plant, Solomon Burke). Recorded in Nashville, with a group of stellar musicians, this is Colvin's first album of new material in six years.
The release of All Fall Down comes on the same date as William Morrow/HarperCollins publishes her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, which insightfully and candidly looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows. The wit, lyricism, and empathy found in the book are traits that have long characterized Colvin's songwriting and her live performances.
