MERCURY/NASHVILLE artist JAMEY JOHNSON will release his lead single from his forthcoming album “The Guitar Song” TODAY (8/9) at 3p (ET) on PLAY MPE. The single “Playing The Part” will be available at iTUNES on AUGUST 24th and “The Guitar Song” album is due out SEPTEMBER 14th.
“The Guitar Song” is a 25-song double album with thematically linked sets of songs dubbed the “Black Album” and the “White Album.” The album will also be available as a limited-edition, black and white triple LP vinyl set that includes a deluxe lyric book.
JOHNSON said: “The original idea was always to do a double album. It is an album that is a tale. The first part is a very dark and sordid story. Then everything after that is progressively more positive, reassuring and redemptive.”
