Finally--here's some news about LeAnn Rimes that true fans of her career (and not her oft-reported/discussed personal life) will appreciate. It sounds as if the singer will be releasing her long-awaited album, Lady And Gentlemen, soon.
Rimes, who's very active on Twitter, used the social network as a convenient platform to announce the news. On Wednesday, she tweeted the following teaser: "Well, I have a release date for Lady and Gentlemen, but I'm I won't say exactly when yet cause I'm always afraid it will change."
Fans didn't have to wait too long, however, for more news. "I have been told Lady and Gentlemen will be released Sept 27," she tweeted Saturday. "Very excited to share the album w/ my fans!"
Rimes's album, a collection of cover songs originating from classic country artists, has been languishing in limbo for quite a while now. First single, John Anderson's "Swingin'," came out in June of 2010. "Crazy Women" followed in November. To give you some perspective: Both of these songs were released before Rimes even said "yes" to now-husband Eddie Cibrian's proposal! (Which happened in December 2010, for the record.) Rimes's last studio album, Family, came out in 2007.
In the meantime, while you're waiting for the full record to arrive--Rimes's newest single, "Give" is now available at iTunes. Have a listen and be sure to let me know what you think of it.
Can't wait to have the spotlight back where it belongs--on LeAnn's music, not her figure!
As always, be sure to:
