    On June 5, Shawn Colvin will issue All Fall Down via Nonesuch.

    A collection of 11 songs, All Fall Down is Colvin's eighth studio album and the first to be produced by her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller (Robert Plant, Solomon Burke). Recorded in Nashville, with a group of stellar musicians, All Fall Down features performances by Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Jakob Dylan, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bill Frisell, Viktor Krauss, Brian Blade, Stuart Duncan, and Julie Miller, among others.  

    All Fall Down follows 2009's solo acoustic set, Shawn Colvin Live.

    The new album was recorded in producer Buddy Miller's home studio, and each song is deeply personal to Colvin, who describes All Fall Down as "an album about loss but also about redemption and resolution."

    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.

    Colvin wrote or co-wrote eight of the album's 11 tracks, too.

    Track List:

    1. All Fall Down
    2. American Jerusalem
    3. Knowing What I Know Now
    4. Seven Times the Charm
    5. Anne of the Thousand Days
    6. The Neon Light of the Saints
    7. Change Is on the Way
    8. I Don't Kno You
    9. Fall of Rome
    10. Up on That Hill
    11. On My Own
