I got to chat with Brian Hiatt for Rolling Stone’s Music Now podcast last week – we talked about my whole career and my new album Re-Covered. Check it out here!
JUST ANNOUNCED: I’m going to play an in-store show and sign some CDs and deluxe albums at Electric Fetus in Minneapolis on August 4th – album release day! – at 7pm. Hope you’ll come for the music and celebrate the release of ‘Re-Covered’ with me. It’ll be great to be home and sharing music on a special day. RSVP on Facebook.
Re-Covered News: Billboard Premieres Official Music Video for “Someone Like You” (ft. Kronos Quartet)
Something new: I went up to Berkeley, California to record “Someone Like You” with the amazing Kronos Quartet, and we made a video documenting those sessions. Here it is, courtesy of Billboard: my Re-Covered version of “Someone Like You,” (ft. Kronos Quartet.)! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: working with Kronos Quartet was a dream. I’m so grateful to them for the idea to collaborate, and I’m so happy that this was the song we tackled together. Please check out the video!
Friends and fans – it seems like about the right time, so I released another song from my upcoming album, Re-Covered today: “When The Stars Come Out,” which I wrote with Chris Stapleton. I drew a celestial, calligraphy-packed, illustrated lyric video to go with my version of the song – check out the premiere in Taste of Country. The song is also available now on PledgeMusic and everywhere you get music (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc) along with two other songs from the Re-Covered album – “Someone Like You” (ft. Kronos Quartet) (written with Adele) and “Home” (written with Dierks Bentley).
Friends – I’m so happy that I’m finally able to share the full track list and the first two songs from my new album, Re-Covered. “Someone Like You” (feat. Kronos Quartet) (written with Adele) and “Home” (written with Dierks Bentley and Brett Beavers) are both available now for Pledgers to download as well as everywhere you get your music (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc).
I drew some rad calligraphy videos for these songs too – please check out…
