Lizz Wright will make her debut for Concord Records with the September 4th release of her new album, Freedom & Surrender. Fans who pre-order the album via iTunes and other digital retailers (see http://LizzWright.lnk.to/FreedomSurrender) will receive an immediate download of “Lean In,” along with three additional tracks prior to the official release.
Freedom & Surrender was produced by Grammy-winning bassist and producer Larry Klein, known for his work with Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, Shawn Colvin and Madeleine Peyroux. Jazz/R&B/gospel singer/songwriter Wright collaborated with Klein and songwriters J.D. Souther, Toshi Reagon, Maia Sharp, David Batteau and Jesse Harris on the new material.
Wright, the daughter of a Middle Georgia pastor, will support the album with a US tour during September, with European dates following in October.
