Wynonna Judd, Jason Isbell Share New Duet, ‘Things That I Lean On’ [LISTEN]
“Things That I Lean On” features Jason Isbell on background vocals, but his voice doesn’t steal the show from Judd; rather, it adds just a touch of softness to the Travis Meadows-penned track. The video itself, which fans can watch above, doesn’t feature Isbell at all.
Judd’s duet with Isbell is far from the only collaboration on Wynonna & the Big Noise. The project also features Judd performing with with Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Timothy B. Schmit and her husband, Cactus Moser, who produced the project.
“I have a newfound passion for what it is God gave me the gift to do, and it’s all because of my husband,” Judd says. “He challenged me in a way that no one has ever — he stripped me of all my gimmicks and all my ‘go-to’s’ … the ways I’ve done things in the past. He said, ‘This is a new day and a new way to be,’ and I just got in the studio in front of that microphone and sang from my toenails. I let whatever came to me just fly.”
Wynonna & the Big Noise is the singer’s first full-length album of original material since 2003’s What the World Needs Now Is Love. The project is set for release on Feb. 12 and is available for pre-order via iTunes and Amazon.
