The releases will kick off June 23 with his 2002 collaborative album, The Great Divide, followed by 1998’s Daniel Lanois-produced Teatro on Aug. 4 in honor of its 25th anniversary.
The Great Divide saw Nelson duet with a roster of artists across the musical spectrum on a rousing collection of originals and covers for his 50th studio album. Joined by a diverse group including Alison Kraus, Bonnie Raitt, Brian McKnight, Kid Rock and Lee Ann Womack, the collection features highlights such as the Rob Thomas-penned duet, “Maria (Shut Up And Kiss Me)” as well as “Mendocino County Line,” co-written by Bernie Taupin, who also co-wrote “This Face.” Other standouts include covers of Mickey Newbury’s “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In),” Cyndi Lauper’s signature tune, “Time After Time,” and the title track which sees Nelson taking the lead for a Spanish-tinged original.
Nelson’s 2000 ode to the blues, Milk Cow Blues, will arrive Sept. 15 as a double LP, while 1996’s stripped-back Spirit will bow on Oct. 20, ahead his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Nov. 3. The Great Divide and Milk Cow Blues will be making their vinyl debuts while Teatro and Spirit return to vinyl due to popular demand.
All albums will be available on 180-gram black vinyl as well as a limited edition color variant on 140-gram vinyl, exclusively available through uDiscover Music and Nelson’s website. The Great Divide and Spirit will be pressed on clear vinyl while Teatro and Milk Cow Blues will be on translucent red vinyl and orange vinyl. The LPs are available for pre-order now.
