Loretta Lynn to Release First New Album in Over 10 Years, “Full Circle”

Loretta Lynn last released an original studio album in 2004, the acclaimed and award-winning Van Lear Rose. But now, 12 years later, Loretta is giving fans a new album titled Full Circle, set to be released on March 4, 2016.

The album promises to live up to the title, as it takes listeners through Lorettas musical journey with songs ranging from traditional Appalachian tunes from her childhood to fresh renditions of Lorettas classics and brand-new material. Full Circle also features Lorettas duets with Willie Nelson on “Lay Me Down” and Elvis Costello on “Everything It Takes.”

To coincide with the album, PBS will air a documentary on Loretta’s life and career, American Masters—Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl, on March 4, 2016, the day of the release. The film will explore Loretta’s hard-fought road from poverty to country stardom.

Full Circle was produced by Lorettas daughter Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash. The album is available for pre-order at Amazon Music.
