Lucinda Williams to Re-Release Self-Titled Debut Album
Lucinda Williams fans who have been dying to get their hands on her critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album will finally get their wish.
The singer-songwriter is re-releasing the 1988 album, also called 'Rough Trade,' through Thirty Tigers. Fans can visit PledgeMusic.com for special pre-order packages, including signed copies of the collection in both vinyl and CD format, as well as receive updates on new music and Williams' legendary career.
"I can’t even begin to explain what this album means to me," Williams says. "It was the first record where I truly found myself… or, at least, figured out what it is I do. And it has shaped me as an artist from that year forward.
"For decades, people have wondered why they couldn’t buy this album in stores," the songstress adds. "So, when I decided it was the right time to get this music back out into the world and into the hands of my dearest fans, I knew I wanted to do it in a way that would somehow say thanks for all of your faith over the years. And that’s exactly why we’re here."
The album, which has not been available for 10 years, will be released on Jan. 14.
"We are honored to be working with the incredible Lucinda Williams and once again with Thirty Tigers," PledgeMusic founder and CEO Benji Rogers says. "PledgeMusic continues to gain more and more traction with both labels and great artists such as Lucinda as they both discover the benefits of our music community and direct-to-fan approach. We could not be more thrilled to be re-releasing this landmark album."
