Marty Stuart is releasing a new digital album. “Songs I Sing In The Dark” will feature 20 songs, with Marty sharing one tune each month.
“The title tells the story. I have a long line of songs that range from obscure, originals, to old favorites from various musical worlds that I often sing to myself when I’m alone,” Marty shares. “Until recently, I had never formally made a list of all the titles.”
He adds, “When I did, I saw in those titles so many great songs that need to be remembered and passed down. There was a mighty congregation of names of profound songwriters whose presence and lyrics are to be cherished,” noting, “In the wake of these revelations, I was inspired to finally go to work on the idea of Songs I Sing in the Dark.”
- The album’s first release is the tune “Ready for The Times To Get Better.” “As the pandemic raged on, ‘Ready For The Times To Get Better’ became my personal theme song,” he says. “I can’t seem to quit playing it. Several months later, I’m still at it.” Check it out to the right.
