Wanda Jackson records new disc with Justin Townes Earle
Wanda Jackson isn't slowing down. "Unfinished Business" will be released Oct. 9 on Sugar Hill Records.
This is Jackson's 31st studio album and marks the producing debut of Justin Townes Earle. Of working with Earle, Jackson said, "From day one I really liked Justin's idea to take me back to my roots and make a record of country, blues and rockabilly songs. The band was extra tight and great to work with during the whole process. The record just sounds terrific, and I'm hoping that my fans enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it."
Recorded in Nashville at House of David Studios in early 2012, the 10-song album features renditions of California Stars (an unfinished Woody Guthrie song with music later added by Wilco's Jay Bennett and Jeff Tweedy), Pushover (Billy Davis and Tony Clarke), It's All Over Now (Bobby Womack and Shirley Jean Womack) as well as a duet with Earle on Am I Even A Memory (Greg Garing).
Songs on the CD are:
1. I'm Tore Down
2. The Graveyard Shift
3. Am I Even a Memory (featuring Justin Townes Earle)
5. It's All Over Now
6. Two Hands
7. Old Weakness
8. What Do You Do When You're Lonesome
9. Down Past the Bottom
10. California Stars
The new album follows Jackson's 2011 Jack White-produced "The Party Ain't Over," which received both widespread critical and commercial acclaim.
Jackson embarks on a series of performances this fall, including a special show at New York's Highline Ballroom on Oct. 12 with additional dates will be announced shortly.
The Queen of Rockabilly is credited with being the first woman to ever record a rock and roll song-Let's Have a Party in 1958.
