Since 2016, Wyonna Judd has not released a single project of her own. But the wait is finally over as Judd will be releasing her first EP this spring!
Set to be released on October 30 this year, “Recollections” will be featuring four cover songs from Judd. Cactus Moser, Judd’s husband, helped produce her EP since signing with Anti-Records in early 2019. The EP would be featuring classics like John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery, “Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good,” Slim Harpo’s “King Bee,” and many more.
No Tour, No Problem!
More than just releasing another masterpiece, Judd found the oil to keep her artistic engine working despite the current situations. Long tours, large concerts, and the bright lights have seemed to be just a reminder of the past for all of us. We spent more time than ever in our houses than walking on the buzzing streets or rushing to your next meeting. And for Wyonna Judd, the time she spent at home have been most rewarding.
Like everybody else, Judd has been stuck in her Nashville home. Wyonna Judd saw this time as an opportunity for her to learn a lot and be productive. Without her busy schedule, all that is left for Judd to do is polish her talent which she immediately puts to use by recording her newest EP “Recollections.”
Here are the tracks to expect from Judd’s newest EP “Recollections.”
