Kris Kristofferson Releases His First Collection Of New Material In Four Years.
Kris Kristofferson has accomplished many things…he’s been a Golden Gloves boxer, a Rhodes scholar, a college football player, an acclaimed actor, a military officer, a helicopter pilot, a Grammy-winner, a screw-up and an icon. And with all of that under his belt, he keeps on truckin’. Kristofferson will release Feeling Mortal, his first collection of new material in four years on January 29, 2013.
“Going back to the beginning, the songs have been reflections of where I was at that point in my life,” he says. “I always try to be as honest as I can in the songwriting, otherwise there’s no point in doing it: I might as well be doing an advertising job or something. And what I’m finding, to my pleasant surprise at this age, is that I’m more inclined to laughter than tears. I hope I’ll feel this creative and this grateful until they throw dirt over me.”
He finds himself releasing the third Don Was-produced album in a twilight years trilogy. Feeling Mortal follows 2009’s Closer To The Bone and 2006’s This Old Road in examining hard-won grace.
I love Kristofferson’s style and can’t wait for this new collection!
