Glen Campbell takes a fresh look at his quintessential hits in 'See You There', set for release on August 12th by Surfdog. Glen Campbell, who just celebrated his 77th birthday, will release a new album, See You There, which offers stunning new takes of his career-defining hits, including 'Gentle On My Mind', and 'Rhinestone Cowboy'. During the sessions for 2011's acclaimed 'Ghost On The Canvas', Campbell for the first time laid down new vocals for many of his classic hits. Producers Dave Kaplan and Dave Darling later took Glen's vocals and reinterpreted the songs to convey an intimacy that is at once chilling, uplifting, haunting and spine-tingling all at the same time, all of this much to Campbell's delight. It also includes 'There's No Me...Without You', which Campbell wrote with Julian Raymond and the previously unreleased 'Waiting On The Coming Of My Lord'. Shortly after the Ghost sessions concluded, Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He was honoured with a star-studded tribute at the Country Music Awards in 2011 and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the GRAMMY Awards in 2012. "This record is a more intimate and unique take on many of Glen's most popular songs as well as some other gems. The producers took the magic of his voice and showcased it with tastefully chosen instrumentation, in a whole new and different way for Glen." says Kim Campbell, Glen's wife. Campbell titled the album 'See You There', an expression that's been a trademark of his for decades, but takes on an added poignancy at this stage of his life and career as do the songs that take us back to the early days of his career. Collection Includes Grammy®-Winning Songs 'Gentle On My Mind' and 'By The Time I Get To Phoenix', plus 'True Grit', 'Wichita Lineman', 'Galveston' & more. Career-defining hits re-interpreted: From the Wrecking Crew to 'Rhinestone Cowboy'. Twenty-one Top 40 hits with two hitting No. 1. Six Top 20 albums including chart-topper 'Wichita Lineman'. Five Grammy Awards, three Grammy Hall of Fame honours and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

In one sense this is Glen Campbell for the alternative country generation. Nowhere is this clearer than on his take of Jimmy Webb's greatest song "Wichita Linesman". The original lush string arrangement is absent and instead Campbell sings it as a barroom ballad. His voice still sounds like musical honey and the depth that comes through age adds a juggernaut sized level of poignancy to a great performance. Those other Webb classics are equally well done. "By the time I get to Phoenix" is stripped back to gentle acoustics with the odd strain in Campbell's performance adding to the songs sense of regret. "Galveston" is even more bare bones with the slide guitar and accordion lending it a much more contemplative and reflective feel.Read more ›
The hits are all here. Glen's voice has changed with his age but the honey-tones are still there and he hits the notes and timing with the man who still has the attraction to beguile. It is an impossible task to pick out the highlights as they are all gems. 'Witchita Linesman' and 'Phoenix' contain lyrics and melodies beyond criticism. In 'Postcard From Paris', he sings "I don't know what it's all about, I wish you were here when the shadows fall". Glen, we will be.
I saw Glen in concert in 1972 in the "House of Stoush" (Festival Hall) Melbourne and as he was then, he is now - a consummate professional who brings it all to some of the greatest songs ever written. I don't care how many of the tracks on "See You There" you own already. Your collection is not complete without it. God bless you Glen - listening to your music is getting me through the tough days - Thanks for the music, the memories and the inspiration, you truly are a star.
