LYLE LOVETT’S NATURAL FORCES SET FOR OCTOBER 20 RELEASE ON CURB/LOST HIGHWAY/Humphead Records
ALBUM FEATURES NEW SONGS WITH COVERS OF TEXAS SONGWRITERS

Nashville, TNNatural Forces, the stunning new album from four-time Grammy Award winner Lyle Lovett, is set for an October 20 release on Curb/Lost Highway. Texas is the common theme running throughout Natural Forces, but not as the subject matter as much as the songwriters Lovett chose to cover.

Natural Forces boasts four Lovett-penned originals, with seven songs written by Texas songwriters Lovett admires.

Lovett recorded Natural Forces with his legendary Large Band, and long-time collaborator Billy Williams returns to co-produce. Despite recording with his band, most of Lovett’s arrangements on Natural Forces are subtle and hauntingly beautiful. His gorgeous versions of Eric Taylor’s “Whooping Crane”, Vince Bell’s “Sun and Moon and Stars” and Townes Van Zandt’s “Loretta” are powerful reminders that Lovett possesses one of the most distinctive voices in music.

Lovett has not lost his wry sense of humor and penchant for the up-tempo arrangements he’s known for, as heard on “Farmer Brown/Chicken Reel” and “Pantry” (co-written by April Kimble). Lovett also warns of the pitfalls and demands of rock stardom in the revved up “It’s Rock And Roll” (co-written by Robert Earl Keen). Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has created an incredible body of acclaimed work. His songwriting melds blues, country, rock, gospel, big band swing, jazz and folk into a unique and rich style that has become synonymous with the artist. Natural Forces continues in the tradition of timeless music Lovett continues to create.
