Mainstream star Jonny Lang set to release 'Turn Around' album

AMERICAN blues rock man Jonny Lang, who has recently gained a Grammy nomination and plaudits from critics for his tour with the Rolling Stones, is set to release a new album in the US on 19th September. 'Turn Around' is Jonny's first album on which he has written or co-written nearly all of the songs. Producer Ron Fair, whose many credits include Black-Eyed Peas' "Where Is The Love," realises the funk and gospel energy inherent in these 14 songs co-written by Lang and Grammy winners Drew Ramsey and Shannon Sanders (India Arie, Temptations, Nicole C Mullen), as well as CCM star Steven Curtis Chapman. Said Chapman, "I'm very honoured to have had the privilege of writing with Jonny for this record and our friendship has shown me that he's a man that's passionate about his faith as a Christian and is committed to reflecting that in his music. This is an amazing record from an amazing artist." CR
