It’s been 10 long years since her last studio release, but music legend Loretta Lynn is finally releasing a new album. The Country Music Hall of Fame member has signed a multi-album deal with Legacy Recordings, and the first collection is slated to drop in 2015.
It will be Lynn’s first new album since 2004’s acclaimed (and Grammy-winning) Van Leer Rose, which she recorded with Jack White. The material will focus on music Lynn’s been recording with producers Patsy L Russell (Lynn’s daughter) and John Carter Cash (son of the late June Carter and Johnny Cash). The sessions have taken place over the last seven years at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn.
Musically the new recordings cover a wide range of styles and sounds that represent Lynn’s extensive musical history, including Appalachian folk and gospel songs she first learned as a girl, country standards, new interpretations of her own hits and a selection of new, original songs.
