Lauderdale announces 32nd album

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 – 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
One Away
Listen
For Keeps
Slow Turn In The Road
I'll Forgive You If You Don't
Graceland Horses
Ever Living Loving Day
Are You Trying To Make A Song Out of Us?

CD reviews for Jim Lauderdale

From Another World CD review - From Another World
Following the passing of the late, great James Brown, there are those that have argued that Jim Lauderdale rightfully deserves to inherit the title of the hardest working man in show business. And for good reason. An avowed and industrious multi-tasker, Lauderdale never rests, a habit that once resulted not only in his decision to release several albums in a single year, but more remarkably, multiple albums all at one time. Suffice it to say that Lauderdale has never adhered to the old adage »»»
Time Flies CD review - Time Flies
Americana's most prolific artist has delivered another strong set of performances. Jim Lauderdale's signature singing manner, distinctively unhurried with elongated phrasing emphasized in nearly every song, may turn-off some - but if you haven't come under his spell by now, there isn't much chance of conversion as we head toward the 30th anniversary of "Planet Of Love." For the rest of us, "Time Flies" causes...well time to fly. "The road is a river, »»»
London Southern
Like the genre, Americana, for which he is its face, Jim Lauderdale can be described as eclectic, uncategorizable and constantly searching for something different. It would be difficult to find another artist who has delivered with this, his 29th album in just a 26-year span of recording. This is his seventh in the last four years. Here, he channels the sounds of early '60s American soul music filtered through the British approach, having recorded the sessions in London with Nick »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Gayle, Orlando provide good old-fashioned entertainment – Although this pairing of country star Crystal Gayle and Tony Orlando may have - on the surface - appeared to be an odd one, tonight's audience demonstratively loved each performer equally. It was an evening of memorable songs, fun and funny stories and just good old-fashioned entertainment. Gayle opened the show with a strong set of country... »»»
Concert Review: With or without band, Isbell satisfies – Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
