Grammy and CMA award-winning artist Juice Newton will release a duets record, Duets: Friends & Memories, on November 16th, featuring a soulful twist on classic pop songs. Newton’s first single, “Funny How Time Slips Away,” with Willie Nelson, is out now.
Newton also joins forces with Glen Campbell, Frankie Valli, Melissa Manchester, Gary Morris, Randy Meisner and the late Dan Seals. “For me, it was like making three records,” Newton says. “These singers are so wonderful and unique – I really wanted to be on my game. I lived with my headphones on, studying the songs and preparing my interpretations.”
Newton’s noteworthy career includes multiple platinum and gold albums and 15 Top 10 hits, including “Angel of the Morning,” “Queen of Hearts” and “The Sweetest Thing (I’ve Ever Known).” Newton will hit the road in support of Duets; dates to be announced.
