LeAnn Rimes Pushes Back Album Release Date

LeAnn Rimes recently announced that the release date for her new album Lady and Gentleman will be pushed back because of the addition of two bonus tracks, including a remake of her hit “Blue.”

“I have been in the studio working on a new bonus track for Lady and Gentleman, and also a brand-new version of ‘Blue,'” LeAnn revealed to fans via video message. “I have gotten an overwhelming response at my concerts for the brand-new live version of that we’ve been doing, and a lot of fans have been asking me to re-record ‘Blue.’ It has been 15 years since that song has been released. For such a classics record like Lady and Gentleman, I thought that song is pretty much considered a ‘classic’ now…why not record it at 28 [years old], and not 13 [years old], and put it on this album. So it’s a bit of a new version. I am really excited about working it up for you guys and recording it.”

Although there is currently no new release date for the album, Rimes says that she’s hoping it won’t be too long.

“The album should be in your hands soon. I want it to be perfect. It’s just not completely done yet, so you’ll have to wait a little bit longer, but it will be in your hands as soon as it gets done. Thank you guys for your support, and thank you for loving my music for the last 15 years. I love you guys very much, and you’ll have new music soon!”

The album was originally set to release on October 5.
