Legendary Country star Glen Campbell will release his final album Adios on 9th June 2017 through Virgin EMI/UMC.

Bringing to an end a career that has spanned more than five decades, Adios was recorded at Station West in Nashville. The singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011 and is now in the final stages of the illness.

Kim Campbell, Glen’s wife of 34 years, says: “A new Glen Campbell album coming out in 2017 might seem a bit odd since he hasn’t performed since 2012, and even more odd – if not absolutely amazing – when you consider that he has Alzheimer’s disease. Glen’s abilities to play, sing and remember songs began to rapidly decline after his diagnosis in 2011. A feeling of urgency grew to get him into the studio once again to capture what magic was left. It was now or never.”

She concludes, “What you’re hearing when listening to Adiós is the beautiful and loving culmination of friends and family doing their very best for the man who inspired, raised, and entertained them for decades – giving him the chance to say goodbye to his fans, and put an amazing collection of songs onto the record store shelves.”

Glen’s longtime banjo player and family friend Carl Jackson produced the record and played guitar on the record.

The 12-track collection features songs that Glen has always loved but never recorded. There are several tracks from longtime collaborator Jimmy Webb and Glen puts his spin on several classics songs such as Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right by Bob Dylan.

A 2CD edition of Adios will feature a bonus disc featuring Glen’s greatest hits including Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman, Southern Nights, By The Time I Get To Phoenix and Galveston.
