Alison Krauss Previews New Album “Windy City”

Alison Krauss is releasing her first album for Capitol Records, Windy City.  The new album is also her first without Union Station since her 2007 collaboration with Robert Plant, Raising Sand.

The new album includes some classic covers like “You Don’t Know Me,” Willie Nelson’s “I Never Cared for You,” and “Poison Love” (recorded by Bill Monroe).

The first released track from the album is “Losing You.” In 1963, Brenda Lee released her version of the song, which was written by Jean Renard and Carl Sigman. Famous record producer Owen Bradley produced Lee’s version. Below is Krauss’s new recording.

In the video below, Brenda Lee, who still tours, performs “Losing You” in a 1965 concert in Japan.

Krauss has also released a trailer for her new album.  Check it out.

Windy City hits the Internet and stores on February 17, 2017. The album tracks are: “Losing You”; “It’s Goodbye and So Long to You”; “Windy City”; “I Never Cared for You”; “River in the Rain”; “Dream of Me”; “Gentle on My Mind”; “All Alone Am I”; “Poison Love”; and “You Don’t Know Me.”
