From Pete Donnelly (solo artist, founding member of the Figgs and former member of NRBQ):
“Some of you may have heard Shelby Lynne singing on my records as of late. We’ve been writing and recording together for the last couple years and out of that work comes the title track for her next studio album. i couldn’t be more thrilled about this. i’ll be joining her this year touring behind both her new studio album and the reissue of “I Am Shelby Lynne.” the plan is to play both records entirely. tour starts in may. hope to see you!”
Shelby Lynne’s upcoming album, I Can’t Imagine, is slated for release on May 5 on Rounder Records. Donnelly and Lynne co-wrote the title track, as well as another song, “Better.” Two other tracks on the 10-song album were co-authored by Lynne and Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith.
No tour dates have been announced yet, but stay tuned…
REMINDER: Donnelly & the Figgs are scheduled to play a CD release party at the Low Beat on Friday, June 5.
