Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis release their fourth duets album on June 21, a nice treat for summer.
Titled Beautiful Lie, the new album will be released on Robison’s The Next Waltz label. Great title for the album and the label.
Robison produced the album at his all-analog studio in Lockhart – that’s a plus for audio fans. The songs include originals, covers and some time travel vintage songs, including “Beautiful Lie,” which appeared on the Amazing Rhythm Aces’ 1975 debut album.
There are four songs written by Bruce Robison, including one co-written with Jack Ingram, “Astrodome.”
The Next Waltz label launched in 2016 and includes a web series featuring interviews, videos and specially recorded songs.
The first single from the album is “Nobody’s Perfect,” which will be released Friday, May 10.
May 19, Robison and Willis kick off their summer tour in Round Top.
