Kinky Friedman Find "Resurrection" On His New Album

On the eve of turning 75 years old, Kinky Friedman shows no signs of slowing down. He will release a new album titled "Resurrection" on October 25th and then is heading out on a month-long tour beginning November 1st in New Haven, CT. Friedman's new album continues to show this renewed energy in his songwriting, as producer Larry Campbell brings out the best from Friedman on this new eleven-song set.

The new release begins with up-tempo, Americana swing of "Mandela's Blues," as Kinky's weathered vocals are the perfect setting for the song's storied lyrics. He receives a lending hand from friend and fellow artist Willie Nelson on the title track "Resurrection," while "Greater Cincinnati" is pure classic country, highlighted by some sweet steel guitar. The wonderful acoustics of "The Bridge That Wouldn't Burn" is the perfect setting for Kinky's vocals, as he sings his heart out. The album finishes with the wonderful country waltz of "Carryin' The Torch" and the Latin flair of "Ai! Mariachi!," before closing with the swift, lifting melody of "Spirit Dad."
