Loretta Lynn Releasing New Album in March

Full Circle Features Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello

Loretta Lynn will release Full Circle, her first album of new recordings in more than 10 years, on March 4 with guest appearances by Willie Nelson and Elvis Costello.

Produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash, the 13-track album will be released by Legacy Recordings. It’s the first volume of the Cash Cabin Recordings, a series of new album projects recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Full Circle is described as “a journey through Loretta’s musical story, from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a child, to new interpretations of her classic hits and country standards, to songs newly-written for the project.”

The album opens with “Whispering Sea,” a new version of the first song Lynn ever wrote and also contains new recordings of some of her classic hits, including “Fist City.” Nelson joins her on “Lay Me Down,” and Elvis Costello collaborates with her on “Everything It Takes.”

Full Circle is the 83-year-old Country Music Hall of Fame member’s first album of new recordings since Van Lear Rose, her 2004 Grammy-winning collaboration with Jack White.
