Laura Bell Bundy Getting Personal With ‘Another Piece of Me’ Album This June
A talent across many genres and art forms, Laura Bell Bundy has announced her new country album Another Piece of Me will be released June 9. Fans itching to get their hands on it can preorder May 26.
Another Piece ... contains 15 tracks, more than half of which the artist co-wrote or co-produced. The record is also chalk-full of collaborations with veteran producers like Nathan Chapman, Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and Tyler Cain.
Bundy says the album will be very personal, which is a new adventure for the singer, who has spent much of her career playing characters on Broadway or on TV.
“This album is something completely different and the most personal body of work I’ve ever done. It is the real me,” she shares via Big Machine Records. “I’m thrilled to show fans that we all have a spectrum of emotions throughout our lives."
The songs, she says, encompass a range of feelings with musical styles to match.
“‘Kentucky Dirty’ and ‘Two Step’ show my playfulness and humor to crank up for a random dance party,” she explains. “But ‘China and Wine’ and ‘Another Piece of Me’ are more introspective, reflecting how I’ve dealt with the occasional sadness and messiness that life throws you."
Bundy is giving fans a glimpse into the album via social media in the coming weeks, including photos, videos, audio snippets and behind-the-scenes videos in support of the album’s release. She will even premiere two full songs before the full album is available.
“I hope everyone truly feels like they know Another Piece of Me after listening,” Bundy says.
The spunky singer-songwriter will take the stage at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville just three days after it comes out, performing songs from her new record as well as the fan-favorite, "Two Step."
