Kill Rock Stars has officially announced the release of CHANGE, the eagerly anticipated debut solo album from the legendary Cindy Wilson. CHANGE arrives at all music retailers and streaming services on Friday, November 17th.
CHANGE is preceded this week by Billboard‘s exclusive premiere of the album’s breezy new single, “No One Can Tell You,” also streaming now via Kill Rock Stars official YouTube channel. “It’s hard to believe this is the first (solo) album Wilson is putting out throughout the entirety of her career,” notes Billboard, adding, “With CHANGE, Wilson was able to experiment with her own creativity and learn about music in an entirely different light. The result is something melodic, calm even, and at times fueled by disco- tinged rhythms.”
Produced by Lyons at The Space Station in Athens, CHANGE is as bold as anything in Wilson’s groundbreaking four decade canon, melding future pop, disco drama, American standards, electronica, and more into her own distinctive creative vision. New songs like “Mystic” and the transformative title track are intricate and inventive, lush and luminous with strings, synthesizers, harmonies, and Wilson’s utterly distinct vocal magic. Further highlights include a pair of unexpected covers: New Colony Six’s soft rock classic, “Things I’d Like to Say,” and “Brother,” written and originally performed by Athens’ own beloved Oh-OK. With CHANGE, Cindy Wilson has once again remade pop in her own innovative, irresistible image.
Known the world over as a vocalist, songwriter, and founding member of the one and only B- 52s, Wilson is heralding CHANGE with an unprecedented multimedia concert tour. North American live dates are currently scheduled through December; additional dates will be announced soon. For updates and more, please see killrockstars.com.
