Jim Lauderdale (starring Elizabeth Cook)
The Secrets of the Pyramids
OOOOHHHHEEEEE! I arrived home late last night in a bit of a grumpy mood; but when I scrolled through my e-mails I stumbled on this announcement; not only is Jim Lauderdale releasing a new album in June, but there’s this single/video starring Miss Elizabeth Cook for me to share with y’all.
Lauderdale’s 32nd studio album, FROM ANOTHER WORLD sees him reuniting with the team behind last year’s acclaimed TIME FLIES, including co-producer/bassist Jay Weaver and GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer David Leonard (Prince, John Mellencamp, Toto). A dynamic mix of solo gems and collaborations with such like-minded co-writers as country legendMelba Montgomery, award-winning producer-songwriter Buddy Cannon, and emerging Americana star Logan Ledger, the 12-song LP represents Lauderdale’s antidote to the anger, divisiveness of today’s world, a world full of bad news and folks yelling at each other on CNN. From the hard-charging opener, ‘Some Horses Run Free,’ to the tender “Listen,” this is music from another world, a world of empathy, love, forgiveness and humility. Where people find freedom through togetherness, where they struggle to change for the better, where country music still cries with the sound of pedal steel guitar and psychedelic-tinged lyrics flow through aching indelible melodies.
