Songwriters Hall Of Fame inductee JD Souther announced a reissue of his classic third album, You're Only Lonely, out July 26 through Omnivore Recordings. The 9-track LP returns for the first time in 35 years, and the CD and Digital add two previously unissued bonus tracks from the album's sessions. New liner notes from Joe Marchese (The Second Disc) feature an interview with JD outlining the recording of the album, the all-star players, and why it is an important record to him and the fans who have supported it for all these years.

"We always said our motto was 'we're building to last.' We really spent a lot of time on the songs. The other motto was, 'no filler.' You don't make a single and then put a bunch of filler on an album. You make an album and hope you have a single." You're Only Lonely epitomizes that ethos. It's built to last. (continue)
