Charlie Robison Plans June 23 Release for New Album

Charlie Robison will release his first album in five years, Beautiful Day, on June 23 on Dualtone Records. Robison wrote much of the album during his divorce from Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks, which was finalized in August. His cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Racing in the Streets” closes the album. “When I was writing this record, I was going through the quintessential divorce thing of living in a one-bedroom apartment in downtown San Antonio across from the bus station,” Robison says. “When it’s over, it’s over.” Other selections include “Reconsider,” “Down Again,” “Nothin’ Better to Do” and the title track.
