Angaleena Presley has revealed the details for her upcoming solo album.

The singer-songwriter, who is best-known to many as one-third of the Platinum-selling Pistol Annies, is set to release ‘American Middle Class’ in October.

Presley wrote five of the album’s 12 tracks, and co-wrote the other seven with a Who’s Who of Nashville’s top songwriters, including Lori McKenna, Mark D. Sanders, Matraca Berg, Sarah Siskind, Bob DiPiero, Luke Laird and Barry Dean. She co-produced the project with her husband, Jordan Powell.

The album is a concept record along the lines of Wille Nelson‘s classic ‘Red Headed Stranger.’

“It’s like my autobiography — each of the songs is a chapter of my life. I’ve literally lived every minute of this record,” Presley states in a press release. “My mama ain’t none too happy about me spreading my business around, but I have to do it. It’s the experience of my life from birth to now.”

Presley worked with a wide range of Nashville’s most respected players for the album, and also drafted a top slate of guest vocalists, including Patty Loveless, Chris Stapleton, Emily Saliers from the Indigo Girls and even her father, Jimmy Presley, who opens the title track with a personal narrative.

She will also reveal fall tour plans soon.

“Playing live is the ultimate connection for a songwriter,” Presley says. “You get to see first-hand how your songs affect someone and I love it.”

‘American Middle Class’ is set for release on Oct. 14 via Slate Creek Records, in partnership with Thirty Tigers.
