Video: Wanda Jackson to release new album "Unfinished Business," produced by Justin Townes Earle, in October
Oklahoma’s own “Queen of Rockabilly” Wanda Jackson will return to her roots with her forthcoming album “Unfinished Business,” which is set to release on Oct. 9 on Sugar Hill Records, the label announced today.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and country music icon worked with producer/folk musician Justin Townes Earle to bring her back to her roots and showcase a side of the singer that fans haven’t heard in some time.
“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,” Jackson tells Rolling Stone. “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.”
“Unfinished Business” will be the longtime Oklahoma City resident’s 31st studio album. Her last album was 2011′s rollicking “The Party Ain’t Over,” produced by rocker Jack White and released by Nonesuch/ Third Man Records.
Recorded in Nashville, Tenn., “Unfinished Business” will features performances of fellow Oklahoma icon Woody Guthrie’s “California Stars” (featured on the recently re-released 1998 Wilco/Billy Bragg album “Mermaid Avenue”) and Bobby and Shirley Womack’s “It’s All Over Now.”
