    Lightbulb Lisa marie presley's first album in five years, storm and grace, scheduled for release on may 15

    LISA MARIE PRESLEY'S

    FIRST ALBUM IN FIVE YEARS, STORM AND GRACE,

    SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE ON MAY 15, 2012



    PRODUCED BY T BONE BURNETT, ALBUM MARKS HER UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC/XIX RECORDINGS DEBUT






    On May 15, Lisa Marie Presley will release Storm and Grace - her first album in five years and her Universal Republic/XIX Recordings debut. Presley is managed by Simon Fuller, CEO and Founder of XIX Entertainment. The album was produced by 12-time GRAMMY® winner T Bone Burnett and recorded at The Village in Los Angeles. See below for track listing.



    Storm and Grace is a marked departure from the hard-edged sound of Presley's earlier albums - 2003's RIAA Gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005's Now What, both of which debuted in the Top 10 of The Billboard 200. The organic instrumentation of Storm and Grace reflects her Southern roots, from the ominous, swampy vibe of lead single "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" and "Sticks And Stones" to "Soften The Blows" and the achingly beautifultitle track, which evoke the ease of an impromptu back porch jam session.



    Presley's smoldering alto is hypnotic in the rootsy opener "Over Me" as she reflects on being replaced in a lover's affections. While Storm and Grace offers an unflinching examination of life and love - beginning with her own shortcomings on "Un-Break" - there is a tender, consoling thread that runs throughout, pointing towards peace and reconciliation. "Weary" may concern a relationship that didn't work out, but it is suffused with a genuine warmth, as Presley sings: "I will always love you/you can move on, dear."

    "Just over two years ago, I went to England to attempt to write another record after finding myself in a considerably disheartened and uninspired state creatively. Over an eight-month period, I wrote 30 songs. I was fortunate to be able to write with some incredible artists and singers such as Richard Hawley (from Pulp), Ed Harcourt, Sacha Skarbek and Fran Healy (from Travis), to name a few," recalls Lisa Marie Presley. "Nothing was planned or contrived in any way and out of it came a very organic record that was always inside of me and that I am incredibly proud of. It was a dream come true and such an honor when T Bone liked the songs and produced and played on the record."



    "When songs from Lisa Marie Presley showed up at my door, I was curious. I wondered what the daughter of an American revolutionary music artist had to say. What I heard was honest, raw, unaffected and soulful. I thought her father would be proud of her. The more I listened to the songs, the deeper an artist I found her to be. Listening beyond the media static, Lisa Marie Presley is a Southern American folk music artist of great value," says T Bone Burnett.



    "Her rich, smoky vocals evoke Sheryl Crow and occasionally bear traces of Courtney Love's ragged disaffection," said Entertainment Weekly of Presley's debut album, To Whom It May Concern, while the Los Angeles Times called the lead single, "Lights Out," "one of the most hauntingly personal songs" of the year. AllMusic.com praised Now What as "genuine...due largely to her willingness to lay herself bare in her music and lyrics." While it may differ sonically, Storm and Grace is equally revealing. The track listing is as follows:

    I tried to like her music but it just wasn't very good to me. Maybe this will be better?

    I thought she said in interview with MJ in 1995 (was that Prime Time interview?) that she doesn't sing. I guess she changed mind in recent years.

    Can this one be about Michael ?! It sound's a little bit - at least for myself. We will see.

    I do not doubt that will probably have a song dedicated to Michael.... maybe the album is dedicated to him?

    LOL....I knew it too. Un-Break as in Unbreakable, You Ain't Seen Nothin Yet....MJ said this at his 45th birthday party. It's been about 16 years. Isn't it time that She Moves On, Dear?

    Because there's a lot of untalented singers out that sell millions of records. It's all about playback now, isn't it? You don't even need to know how to sing.

    She said she sang, but that she wasn't going to do a collab with Michael because she didn't "need" him to have her own music career.

    @Travis I also tried to like her music. Failed.

    @billyworld99 I like dark and angry, but her voice just does nothing for me.

    Fascist much? Last time I Czeched differing opinions on the artist in question were permitted to be voiced. This thread is not a hub of adoration, and we are discussing the musician and her music. Some of us actually gave it a go and didn't find it suited us. Since it's been five years we wonder if the sound will be different. That is all.

    She has an interesting voice, but she isn't a very good singer IMO. Having said that I found the lyrics for some of her songs on her past two albums interesting because there were definitely a lot of those about Michael. She never said this, but to me it's clear. If Adele's "21" is the ultimate scorned lover album then so are LMP's past two albums (especially the first one). I wonder if there will be something about Michael on this latest one as well - obviously in a much different tone than on the first two albums.
