Nashville singer Kelly Lang follows up her 2020 album “Old Soul” with Old Soul II”. Another collection of classics from the 70’s and 80’s, Lang puts her own style on another list of classics including “What’s Love Got to Do with It”, “You’re So Vain”, and “Dreams”.
Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge Boys spoke on Lang and her new album saying, “when an artist records the classics, it’s important to erase everything that every other artist has done. The classics are so known because of their greatness. That is why they live longer than the artist. I believe Kelly wiped the slate clean and started from the very soul of each song. In doing so, she re-created a new magic with her own warmth and soulful voice. Kelly owned each song with a classy respect to every classic.”
The album is available as a digital download and on all streaming platforms.
Speaking on her new album Lang said, “I released OLD SOUL in 2020 and was so pleased with how well it was received. There were so many more songs I wanted to record for that project that we decided to do a second installment with ‘Old Soul II’. I want it on record that I am not trying to do the impossible and improve on the originals, I’m just hoping that a new generation may hear my take on these songs and inspire them to go back in music history and find the originals. Being that we are releasing this on Veteran’s Day, I would like to thank every veteran who has risked everything to protect us all. There are no words worthy of our appreciation to you and your families. God Bless you all.”
