After a decade long hiatus, Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and actor Lyle Lovett is ready to get back after it, as he’s officially announced his brand new upcoming album, 12th of June, slated to drop May 13th.
The album was produced by Chuck Ainlay along with Lovett himself, and will feature a mix of new originals, renditions of greats like Nat King Cole and Dave Frishberg, along with a Horace Silver instrumental, showing off Lovett’s kickass live performances with his Large Band.
We’re talking the sweet mixture of jazz, country, western swing, folk, blues, and gospel, displaying the incredible versatility Lovett has in his arsenal.
With that being said, the title-track to the album has officially dropped today, along with a video of him recording in the studio.
Needless to say, after 10 years, you already know we have something special in store.
