Jennifer Nettles Covering 80s Rock Ballad On Her Solo Debut
As a producer, label executive, and cofounder of Def Jam Recordings, the famously bearded and often-barefoot Rubin has been a massive force in popular music over the past few decades. And with a resume that includes albums by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Weezer, LL Cool J, Slayer, and the Dixie Chicks–not to mention Neil Diamond and Johnny Cash–Rubin seems able to work with artists in any genre.
During a recent interview with The Daily Beast, he talked about some of his recent, past, and future projects where we learn that Jennifer Nettles is covering an '80s classic on her upcoming solo debut.
Rubin is producing the first solo album from the Sugarland frontwoman. The Daily Beast's Andrew Romano reported that while he was in the studio, Rubin was adding horns to a track from the record. "The song," he writes, "is a cover of an underappreciated 1980s classic-rock ballad (I'm not allowed to disclose which), and it sounds incredible." He also made some revelations about other artists.
