Singer-guitarist Glen Campbell is saying farewell with a final studio album, the appropriately titled Adiós. In advance of the album, out June 9th, Campbell has shared the track list to Adiós, which includes a cover of the 1969 Harry Nilsson song "Everybody's Talkin'." (Listen to the song below.)
Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2011, and shortly after embarked on a "Goodbye Tour." The songs that make up Adiós were recorded after Campbell wrapped up that tour in an effort to preserve, as Campbell's wife Kim Campbell writes, "what magic was left." Campbell has not performed or recorded since 2012.
Campbell recorded Adiós at Nashville's Station West with producer and longtime collaborator Carl Jackson. Willie Nelson, Vince Gill and Campbell's own children – Ashley, Shannon and Cal – all make guest appearances on Adiós, which features 12 songs Campbell had long loved but never had the chance to record.
Highlights include the title track, initially written by favorite Campbell collaborator Jimmy Webb and made famous by Linda Ronstadt, and a cover of Willie Nelson's 1968 song "Funny (How Time Slips Away)," on which Campbell is joined by Nelson himself.
Campbell will celebrate his 81st birthday on April 22nd. Here's the full track list for Adiós:
1. "Everybody’s Talkin’"
2. "Just Like Always"
