A new album? Fireflies in Nashville.
One of my favorite songs is ‘Another Time or Place’. When I wrote this song, I had another world in mind: Another dimension, in which that one love, that life, could perhaps exist.
June 2016 ‘Fireflies in Nashville’ was recorded at ‘Studio 19 (Now at The Soundkitchen)’, Nashville. A marvelous studio!
At The Soundkitchen ao. Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and Dolly Parton, have recorded their album.
The day we recorded ‘Another Time or Place’, I concluded with the line “…and dance with fireflies”. At that moment, a storm originating all the way from Texas, was out over Nashville. It caused the power to go down in the studio, as well as outside. As I went out in to the warm evening, I noticed blinking fireflies everywhere. A magical sight. As I was admireing how the male firelies lit up, to signal their desire for the female fireflies, a friend texted me -she did not know, I just worked on that particular song-: “Lana, there are fireflies everywhere!”. A goosebumps moment! As I was thinking about this later, I knew it! The title of my album is: Fireflies in Nashville.
The first single of the album is Love Being a 70’s Child:
The second single of the album is Ball and Chain:
A new album?
After my earlier albums ‘Something About Lana’ and ‘Nashville’, I thought: “Done! My bucket list just became shorter.”. Until Alan Glass invited me to London to write together. Alan is Preston Glass’ brother and they have worked with Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind & Fire, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston, George Benson, The Temptations, Kenny G and Deniece Williams ao.. I came to know Alan via the vocal demo’s I record for some US artists.
August 2016, Lana was at Studio 6 in Jackson to talk about her latest Nashville albums:
