Written for Kurrent Music
Published February 23rd 2016
You may think it was the most unusual piece of music news to hear, when Cyndi Lauper announced a little musical detour to country music for her new album. However, Cyndi’s a woman with many sides to her.
Over the years, she’s already explored many genres, variating from pop, reggae, dance, rock to her current attempt in country music. She’s even written music for the musical “Kinky Boots” and in fact, the most craziest Christmas album I have in my closet, is hers. As well as one of my favorite 80s album, which would have to be “True Colours”, with the beautiful album cover. Yep, I was a bit of fan back in the day.
Back to now though, the album “Detour” is scheduled for release on May 6th, but little by little more details and more tracks are being shared. The album is a collection of classic country songs from the 40s, 50s and 60s.
