Sara Evans Completes New Album
“My goal every time I go in the studio to make a new record is to challenge myself a little bit more, to try to have the newest and freshest sound, but still the Sara Evans sound,” she says. “By that I mean my music has always had the same vocal sound … I love a ton of guitar and there’s just this … sound.”
The debut single off the upcoming album, ‘Slow Me Down,’ has been a career milestone for Evans, with the biggest debut week of any single in her career. The single was released in September.
“I knew, as I’ve known with other songs that I’ve written and recorded, that ‘Slow Me Down’ was me,” she says about the tune. “I love songs that evoke emotion — it really is what connects people to the music. When we went into the studio to record [‘Slow Me Down’] my main goal was to capture the desperation and passion in the song — to strike a balance between a strong vocal and the emotion that would pull in the listener.”
Evans worked with award-winning producer Mark Bright on the upcoming album, which is set to release in 2014.
