– Emmylou Harris's "Wrecking Ball" will be reissued April 8 on Nonesuch Records.
Produced by Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Willie Nelson), "Wrecking Ball" won the 1996 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album and was highly praised by critics worldwide. The new three-disc set features the remastered original album, a bonus CD of previously unreleased material and a DVD of the documentary "Building the Wrecking Ball," which includes interviews and studio footage of Harris and Lanois as well as special guests Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Neil Young, Steve Earle, Brian Blade and others. The album is available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with an exclusive print autographed by Harris.
Harris and Lanois will embark on a short spring tour, including shows at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, The Vic in Chicago, and the Lincoln Theatre in Washington.
The reissue follows a very successful year for Harris, whose new collaborative album with longtime friend and colleague Rodney Crowell, "Old Yellow Moon," recently won the Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. Harris and Crowell were also honored with two awards at the 2013 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards Show: Album of the Year and Duo/Group of the Year.
