Glen Campbell Revisits His Hits With New Album

04/23/2013
.
Country music legend Glen Campbell has set an August 6th release date for his new album, See You There, where he revisits some of his biggest hits with new recordings of the songs.

The album features new versions of Campbell's hits "Gentle On My Mind," "By The Time I Get To Phoenix," "Hey Little One," "Wichita Lineman," "Galveston," "True Grit" and "Rhinestone Cowboy."

The album also includes some recordings from the sessions for his 2011 album, Ghost on the Canvas, including the bonus tracks "What I Wouldn't Give" and "I Wish You Were Here," as well as the previously unreleased "Waiting on the Comin' of my Lord," and the song "There's No Me...Without You," which Campbell wrote with Julian Raymond.

The majority of the tracks were never intended for release. We were sent these details: The story behind See You There echoes that of his 1967 breakthrough album, Gentle On My Mind. Both were recordings that Campbell never intended to be released as an album, sessions that occurred simply because the songs yearned to be sung. While recording Ghost On The Canvas, Campbell found himself at a crossroads. While he forged vibrant new artistic relationships - acolytes Jakob Dylan, Paul Westerberg and Teddy Thompson penned songs for the album and it featured guest appearances by such admirers as Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan, Brian Setzer and members of the Dandy Warhols - Glen simultaneously felt a tug from some of his earliest hit singles. So he laid down new vocals for these songs - and then set the tracks aside.

Shortly after the Ghost sessions concluded, Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Undeterred, he embarked on a series of live dates that he dubbed "The Glen Campbell Goodbye Tour."

"When Glen heard the results of what Dave and Dave did in reinterpreting these songs, he lit up and was smiling from ear to ear. And I was too," says Kim Campbell, Glen's wife. "This record is a more intimate and unique take on many of Glen's most popular songs as well as some other gems. The producers took the magic of his voice and showcased it with tastefully chosen instrumentation, in a whole new and different way for Glen."
