Marty Stuart Announces Upcoming Double Album
Marty Stuart fans are in for a double treat. The singer has announced plans to release a double-disc album, 'Saturday Night & Sunday Morning,' containing both rowdier songs on one disc, and more contemplative, gospel-themed songs for the second disc.
“A few years ago, I rededicated myself to traditional country music,” he explains (quote via Radio.com). “We spent some time in RCA Studios in Nashville, where so much of modern country was created, and we worked to imitate that style of production and songwriting.”
The first disc, 'Saturday Night -- Rough Around the Edges,' includes the title track, 'Rough Around the Edges.' The tune, the 55-year-old says is, “my life from 1987 to about ten years ago…a hard-living honky-tonk musician lifestyle.”
The second disc, 'Sunday Morning -- Cathedral,' serves as a follow-up to his 2008 record, 'Souls' Chapel. Renowned gospel group the Staple Singers join Stuart on the song 'Uncloudy Day' from the record.
This is Stuart's second gospel album this year. His live album, 'The Gospel Music of Marty Stuart' was released in April.
'Saturday Night & Sunday Morning' will be available on Sept. 30. See a complete track listing below.
