Leon Russell - On a Distant Shore 9/22

September 20, 2017

 

Leon Russell's On a Distant Shore is available everywhere on 9.22.17.

 

Leon Russell turned 74 years old in 2016. At the time, he'd already logged more than half a century onstage, weaving a legendary path through the worlds of rock & roll, soul, country, blues and classic pop music. He was still active in the recording studio, too, where he spent much of the year working on a new album, On a Distant Shore, during breaks in his busy touring schedule. 

Released in September 2017, On a Distant Shore arrives 10 months after Russell's passing. It's his final album, offering up a stunning batch of original material — including updated versions of three hits from his older catalog — all influenced by the timeless sounds of the Great American Songbook. These aren't cover songs. Instead, they're Russell's own version of pop and jazz standards, filled with sweeping strings, upright piano, pedal steel, horns, and a voice that retained its powerful, poignant punch until the very end. 

"He said it was his favorite album he ever made," says Leon's wife, Jan Bridges. "He just loved it. He felt like everything clicked into place."
