– Jim Lauderdale will release his 32nd album," From Another World," on June 21 on Yep Roc.
The disc contains a dozen songs. Lauderdale has released the song "The Secrets of the Pyramids" from the album. The traditional leaning song ncludes harmonies from Third Man country singer-songwriter Lillie Mae Rische and her brother Frank Rische. A video, co-starring Elizabeth Cook and directed by award-winning Australian filmmaker Jeremy Dylan ("Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts") also was released.
Lauderdale worked with the same time as last year's "Time Flies": co-producer/bassist Jay Weaver and engineer David Leonard (Prince, John Mellencamp, Toto). Lauderdale wrote with Melba Montgomery, Buddy Cannon, who produces Kenny Chesney, and Americana singer Logan Ledger.
"A long time ago, I decided that with each record, I would ignore the categories people tried to put me into and just make the music that was in my heart," said Lauderdale. "This album is about the search for connection, love and understanding between people, about finding empathy in a world where it feels like folks are more and more at loggerheads. When the world outside your window feels too tough to bear, I hope you'll step into the world we've created here."
Lauderdale always has been prolific, releasing at least one, and sometimes as many as three, records every years since 1998. He has penned or co-wrote country hits by Patty Loveless, George Jones, Mark Chesnutt, and the Dixie Chicks.
The track listing is:
Some Horses Run Free
When You Can't Have What Your Heart Wants
The Secrets of the Pyramids
Like People From Another World
Slow Turn In The Road
I'll Forgive You If You Don't
Ever Living Loving Day
