Lynn goes "Full Circle" with new music

Tuesday, November 10, 2015 – Loretta Lynn will release her first album of new material in more than 10 years in late March, Sony Legacy announced today.

"Full Circle" will be out on March 4, 2016. Produced by her daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell, and John Carter Cash, and recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn., "Full Circle" takes listeners on a journey through Lynn's musical story, from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a child, to new interpretations of her classic hits and country standards, to songs newly-written for the project.

This is Lynn's first disc since "Van Lear Rose," her 2004 collaboration with Jack White, which won two Grammys, including Best Country Album of the Year

On the upcoming release, Lynn, 83, duets with Willie Nelson on "Lay Me Down." "Everything It Takes," features guest vocals from Elvis Costello; "Whispering Sea," a new version of the first song Lynn ever wrote; and soulful new renditions of some of Lynn's classic tunes, including rousing renditions of "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven" and "Fist City" are included.

The album also traditional Appalachian songs from Lynn's childhood such as "Black Jack David" and "I Never Will Marry."

Fans will also have an opportunity to watch a new documentary about Lynn's life, "American Masters - Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl," which premieres nationwide Friday, March 4, 2016 on PBS

Others are old songs ("Black Jack David, "Always On My Mind," "In the Pines") that Lynn ...
Johnny Cash had his Rick Rubin, and it seems that Loretta Lynn has hers in the form of Jack White of the White Stripes. And that means an album of lots of excellent music with all 13 songs penned by Lynn.
