“CALL ME UP,” INDIE ARTIST SHELBY LYNNE’S
NEW VIDEO, PREMIERES EXCLUSIVELY ON HUFFINGTONPOST.COM TODAY
New Song Is From Her Forthcoming EP, Thanks
Digital And Physical Release Of Thanks EP Now Set For December 10
On The GRAMMY® Winner’s Own EVERSO Records
Shelby Lynne’s new video, “Call Me Up,” premieres today on HuffingtonPost.com. Director Jason Harter captures the song being performed live during the sessions for Lynne’s forthcoming EP, entitled Thanks. Shelby brings the legendary Maxine Waters, a longtime friend, and her new pal, Stella – a 1920’s acoustic guitar she recently picked up in Tucson – to the EVERSO studio, where producer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Peeler has rounded up Michael Jerome and Ed Maxwell to play on the EP. As the video shows, the chemistry was instantaneous and the quintet quickly nailed the track.
EVERSO Records, the independent label Lynne founded in 2010, has moved the digital release of Thanks from November to December 10, which is also the physical release date. The EP features five brand new songs written and produced by the iconic artist, who won a GRAMMY award following the release of her breakthrough album, I Am Shelby Lynne, in 2000.
“As a musician, these songs are a way to express my love and gratitude to the universe and to all of the music appreciating souls out there for the friendship and fellowship that music brings us…all in the name of love and sharing,” says Shelby.
Thanks follows 2011’s Revelation Road, which Blurt hailed as “the finest work she’s done at least since 2000′s game-changing I Am Shelby Lynne.” The New Yorker called it “deeply personal,” USA Today praised Lynne’s “earthy, elegant vocals” and MOJO, Uncut and AmericanSongwriter.com each awarded it four stars. As label chief of EVERSO Records, Lynne raised the bar for deluxe editions when she included two additional full-length works in 2012’s deluxe edition of Revelation Road: Live At McCabe’s, which marked her first-ever live album, plus the DVD Live in London. She launched EVERSO with a pair of 2010 releases – Tears, Lies And Alibis, a Top 10 hit at Americana radio, and Merry Christmas, which Parade Magazine called “an instant classic.”Read More
