Mary Chapin Carpenter Sets New Album Release
The Age of Miracles, the new album from world-renowned singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter will be released April 27 on ZoŽ/Rounder Records.
Over the course of a 12-album recording career, Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards and sold over 13 million records. The new record follows 2008's acclaimed Christmas release Come Darkness, Come Night and 2007's Grammy-nominated album The Calling.
Recorded in Nashville, the 12-track album was produced by Carpenter and long-time collaborator Matt Rollings (Lyle Lovett, Keith Urban) and was recorded and mixed by Chuck Ainlay (Mark Knopfler, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson). Carpenter is backed by a band that includes Rollings (piano, B-3 organ), Russ Kunkel (drums), Duke Levine (electric and acoustic guitar), Glenn Worf (bass), Dan Dugmore (steel and 12 string guitar) and Eric Darken (percussion). The album also features guest vocals by Vince Gill on "I Put My Ring Back On" and Alison Krauss on "I Was a Bird."
A national tour is planned surrounding the release. Additional details to be announced.
