First Posthumously-Created Duets Album Re-Imagines Campbell’s Critically Acclaimed, History-Making Farewell Album (Out April 19)

NASHVILLE, TN (April 12, 2024) – Big Machine Records and Surfdog Records today release “Strong (with Brian Wilson),” the latest track available from GLEN CAMPBELL DUETS – Ghost on the Canvas Sessions, set for release on April 19. The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson contributes his vocals to this vulnerable song, written by Campbell (with the help of the album’s producer, Julian Raymond) about facing life with his Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis. Featuring beautiful swelling harmonies and instrumental experimentation reminiscent of The Beach Boys’ iconic Pet Sounds album, the beautiful, track exudes optimism despite its heartbreaking lyrics—much like putting on a strong face for your loved ones.

GLEN CAMPBELL DUETS – Ghost on the Canvas Sessions, the first album recreated completely as duets posthumously, reimagines Campbell’s critically acclaimed, history-making 2011 farewell album with “a head-spinning assortment” (Rolling Stone) of artists including Carole KingDolly PartonElton JohnHope SandovalLinda PerryStingBrian Setzer and more contributing their voices to honor the late legend. 

“Glen was a great singer and a great guy,” says Brian Wilson. “Our intention in doing ‘Strong’ was to echo back to ‘Guess I’m Dumb’ and the times that Glen and I worked together. It’s kinda got that vibe to it and I dig the sound of it.”

“Dreams do come true,” shares producer and co-writer Julian Raymond. “Hearing Brian and his team record one of Glen’s wife Kim’s favorite songs was very emotional for sure. Everything that Brian has been through himself shows up in this performance of ‘Strong.’”

Campbell was one of the biggest stars of his generation—even outselling The Beatles in 1968. Across his illustrious 50+ year career, the Country
Fame member released 64 albums and earned countless awards and recognitions for his music. Ghost on the Canvas (2011) was created by Campbell as a farewell amidst his battle with Alzheimer’s Disease, and the songs featured on the album are clear reflections of a man grappling with life’s big questions brought on from the harrowing diagnosis.

Previously released tracks from the forthcoming project include “Hold On Hope (with Eric Church),” “Nothing But The Whole Wide World (with Eric Clapton),” “There’s No Me… Without You (with Carole King),” and the “gorgeous, melancholy” (BrooklynVegan) “The Long Walk Home (with Hope Sandoval).”

Legendary singer and guitarist Glen Campbell brought country music to the mainstream as the genre’s first crossover star with hits like “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Wichita Lineman” and “Southern Nights.” In a legendary career that spanned more than six decades and more than 50 million records sold, Campbell created an indelible mark on American pop culture as a beloved musician, singer, movie star and television personality. From his time as a groundbreaking guitarist for Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys and many others in the archetypical backing band The Wrecking Crew to his decades atop the charts to the grace he showed as he closed his career while fighting Alzheimer’s disease, there are few artists who have touched as many lives as the Rhinestone Cowboy.
