Shelby Lynne
Tears, Lies & Alibis

[Everso / Fontana; April 19, not final artwork]

Two years on from Just A Little Lovin’, her beautifully realised and moving tribute to the songs of Dusty Springfield, Shelby Lynne returns with her eleventh studio album Tears, Lies & Alibis, the first to be released on her own label Everso Records. Described by distributors Fontana as “a stunning and true revelation by one of the world’s most insightful and unpredictable artists”, the ten-track album follows a period of writer’s block for Shelby that was eventually broken by the song ‘Loser Dreamer’. After that, inspiration came from various sources; ‘Something To Be Said’ is an ode to the American institution that is the iconic Airstream trailer, while lead single ‘Rains Came’ was inspired by a storm out in the Southern California desert she calls home. A little teaser clip is up on YouTube.
