Cyndi Lauper Detour on 180g LP

New Country Covers Album featuring Guest Appearances from Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson & Jewel!

Cyndi Lauper's celebrated musical journey takes an unexpected southern turn on Detour, her eleventh studio album, which finds the Grammy, Emmy and Tony-winning singer-songwriter putting her signature spin on a dozen classic country songs.Detour showcases Lauper's unmistakable voice on country classics from the '40s, '50s and '60s and features guest appearances from county music stars Vince GillEmmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, and Willie Nelson. Lauper recorded the album in Nashville alongside a band comprised of the city's top session players.

Lauper says recording a country album is something she's dreamed about for many years. Growing up, she recalls listening to singers like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Wanda Jackson in her Aunt Gracie's kitchen. "When I was a really young kid, country music was pop music, so this is what we grew up listening to. These songs are part of some of my earliest memories so it has been an absolute thrill to revisit them."

Lauper sounds right at home from the start, beginning with the album opener, "Funnel Of Love," a track Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly, recorded in 1960. Another highlight is the rollicking take on "Heartaches By The Number," a country standard previously covered by everyone from George Jones to Waylon Jennings to Dwight Yoakum. Detour also features stunning covers of two classic Pasty Cline songs, "Walkin' After Midnight" and her #1 smash, "I Fall To Pieces." Lauper says, "I spent a lot of time in my room singing with Patsy. I had to sing a Patsy Cline song - or two - because her voice was like one of my girlfriends. That's how close I felt to her."

For the album, Lauper duets with several special guests, including country music royalty: Emmylou Harris (on the title track), Willie Nelson ("Night Life," a song he wrote over 50 years ago), Vince Gill (Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty's "You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly") and Alison Krauss (Dolly Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas." Jewel also makes an appearance on Detour, showcasing her prodigious yodeling skills on "I Want To Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart," which was the first country song by a woman to sell one million copies.

"She immediately impresses with a solid version of Wanda Jackson's 'Funnel Of Love,' then moves on to deliver a brace of Patsy Cline classics that stand the comparison test, before with the aid of Vince Gill, whooping it up on 'You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly.'" — Mojo, June 2016
