Laura Bell Bundy Announces New Album
Laura Bell Bundy fans are in luck: The singer has announced that her brand-new album, Another Piece of Me, will be released on June 9.
“Much of my career has involved playing characters that have been created for me, but this album is something completely different and the most personal body of work I've ever done … it is the real me,” Bundy shares.
“I’m thrilled to show fans that we all have a spectrum of emotions throughout our lives. "Kentucky Dirty" and "Two Step" show my playfulness and humor to crank up for a random dance party," she continues, name-dropping some of the album's songs (a complete track listing is not yet available). "But "China and Wine" and "Another Piece of Me" are more introspective, reflecting how I’ve dealt with the occasional sadness and messiness that life throws you. I hope everyone truly feels like they know Another Piece of Me after listening.”
The 15-track record includes songs produced by Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus, Nathan Chapman, Tyler Cain and Bundy, who also co-wrote some of the songs on the new album. Another Piece of Me will mark Bundy's first release on Big Machine Records.
“I can only be grateful … for the many relationships, lessons and experiences I’ve had on Music Row that have led me here and finding a true partner in Big Machine and Scott Borchetta,” Bundy says. “Inspiration and passion breed a crazy sort of jet fuel in myself and those at Big Machine. It drives us to constantly create and work really hard to reach those we are creating for. You can call it ‘synergy’ or even ‘madness,’ but I call it ‘home sweet home.’ And I can’t stop smiling.”
Another Piece of Me will be available for pre-order beginning on May 26, but Bundy has already begun releasing photos, videos, audio snippets and the stories behind the songs across all social media platforms. Fans will likely hear some of the new music when she performs during the 2015 CMA Music Festival.
